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.

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 »

This photo of an operating theatre at Rikshospitalet national hospital ca. 1900 is one of my absolute favorites from our archives. Even though the lights are out and the room empty, there’s an intense atmosphere to it. You can almost see the surgeons and the eager students. The light falling on the wall, the wet floor and the wheeled table that’s slightly out of balance with the rest of the room. Very dramatic.

Wish I had more details about it, but even the photographer is unknown.
