Over the last several years, as I continue to do research for various projects, I’ve read about a growing number of Medical Photography Departments that are shutting their doors or changing their focus. Private hospitals, public community-based hospitals, and even several university-based hospitals have closed their photography and media departments in recent years. Costs and hospital/departmental needs are among the top reasons, however a more reoccurring reason is the growth of technology.

Last week I attended the Nordic Light International Photo Festival in the beautiful coastal town of Kristiansund. A part of the festival was the biannual Exposure Photo Competition (“Eksponering” in Norwegian) of the Institutional Photographers Association (IFF).
I’m very happy to announce that I won the Medical Photography category with the photo above, titled “Botox Injection in Colostoma”.
You can see all the winners and honourable mentions from Exposure 2011 here.

If you’re a medical or scientific photographer you should definitely consider submitting your best work to BioImages, an annual visual media competition that showcases the finest still, graphics and motion media work in the life sciences and medicine.
BioImages is sponsored by the BioCommunications Association (BCA) and online submissions are accepted until March 22.

While browsing the Wellcome Images collection I came across these photos showing the various activities of a mid 1980’s Medical Illustration departement. Most likely at the Charing Cross Hospital, the researchers at Wellcome tell me.
It’s interesting to see that even though the technology has changed a lot, the tasks are still much the same: clinical and specimen photography, video production, graphic design and presentation support.
