Clinical Photography in Norway

September 18, 2016 § Leave a comment

michael_3-16_omslagFellow medical photographer Bård Kjersem and I have written an article about the history and current practice of clinical photography at our departments at Rikshospitalet (the National Hospital) in Oslo and Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen.

The article is published in Norwegian in the Michael Quarterly journal (open access) of the Norwegian Medical Society. Read it here.

For foreign readers there is an automatic (and sadly not very good) English translation available here.

Two heart surgery procedures – one open, one closed – in their entirety. This is the full-length feature the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) offered their viewers last week. And it turned out be a night of public education on the complexities of surgery. « Read the rest of this entry »

Rasmus – The Medical Enigma

October 9, 2012 § 4 Comments

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.

I promised I would post photos here now and then, after I shut down my 365 project. This first one goes out to Tokyomas, who’s been nagging me about taking pictures of food. I had an assignment today with the hospital’s main kitchen to shoot some photos from a new cantina in the coronary care unit. They wanted the hospital food to look delicious, of course. Enjoy.

Where Am I?
