Rasmus has been in and out of the hospital for as long as I can remember. He’s kind of large for a rodent, he doesn’t say much, but he’s a likable fellow. For the last three years I have photographed him in all around the hospital, but the doctors don’t seem to find out what’s wrong with him. He’s had blood tests, bone scintigraphy and a PET-scan. He’s had a cardiac catheterization and high-dose chemotherapy. A few months ago he even underwent craniofacial surgery. What’s even worse is he’ll probably have to go through a bunch of other procedures in the years to come, and no one will get any wiser.
If it wasn’t for the fact that Rasmus (“mus” means mouse in Norwegian) is Oslo University Hospital’s mascot for children, and the star of numerous info leaflets, I’d be really worried.

This week the photo exhibition UiO – En uke (UiO – One Week) opened at the Sverdrup Gallery in Oslo.
The university celebrated its 200th anniversary last year. Twelve of the institution’s photographers from several different faculties decided to document work and celebration during the main anniversary week in September.
I photographed different activities at my institute, the Institute of Clinical Medicine, and seven of those photos have ended up on the walls of the gallery, together with fifty-three others from museums, campus life and other institutes.
If you are in Oslo, the exhibition is open until April 27.

Browsing through some old hospital newsletters, I found an article on cesarean sections and noticed a photographer in one of the photos. Being a photography section we typically don’t have many photos of ourselves at work, so I dived into our negative archive in hope of locating the shoot. « Read the rest of this entry »
