on another note, this past week at school, we had a photographer come for a special lecture. now what would a photographer be doing at a medical school, you ask? well you see, his name is rick guidotti and he used to be a high fashion photographer. he has since then embarked on photographing beauty elsewhere, specifically in people who have genetic disorders. the way it happened is kind of long to explain, but basically, he saw a girl with albinism (people who have no color pigments) and thought she was gorgeous. he couldn’t get a picture of her so he looked up what she had and saw all of these depressing pictures of people who are affected with albinism. he wanted to photograph them in a more positive, humanistic light and so he partnered with a group to do this and has since then gone on to photograph so many other people with different disorders. his pictures really gave us lives to identify our future patients with and not just people who are sick. you really see the beauty in each and every one of them and i wanted to share it with all of you. these are his pictures above.
In other news, I’ll be updating this when I can. Med school is a completely different story though compared to undergrad… I needed somewhere where I could post my thoughts and upload pictures as quickly as possible.
