Wilhelm, a set on Flickr.
This is a photo series I shot of Wilhelm, a Norwegian Romani. The photos were taken in 2011 outside Oslo prison, where he was locked up for some time as a youth.
A strong and wise man.
The photos were taken for a project called Romanimanus rakrar avri! – The Romani People’s Own Stories.

The BioCommunications Association (BCA) have introduced a new and exciting feature on their website, called Learn from the Experts. They have picked ten different photos from ten different photographers in the life sciences, that you can hear the story behind and read about the techniques involved to accomplish the shot. Both interesting and instructive!
While you’re over at the BCA, be sure to also check out the winners of the 2013 BioImages contest.
The BCA is a great place to learn and share experiences and techniques with colleagues, so if you’re a medical/biological photographer or illustrator, you should definitely consider joining!

This photo is one of my absolute favorites. An accomplishment in both composition, lighting and planning it is a hidden gem of industrial photography. Hidden because it wasn’t published until 2009. « Read the rest of this entry »

In the documentary she will delve into anatomical specimen collections, so important to the development of modern surgery, in an effort to find out who all these specimens came from. Who were these people?
If you, like me, love medical history, head over to the Indiegogo campaign pages and donate! There are lots of goodies waiting for you depending on the amount you choose to donate, and if you donate before March 9th you’ll even enter a draw.
