A Day in the Life

A number of years ago the “Day in the Life” series of books were very popular. I was a staff ¬†photographer at a hospital at the time and suggested to my director that I should shoot a “Day in the Life” at work. The idea was a go. The entire hospital was alerted. I had one assistant. We started at 4 AM and ended around 9 PM. The hospital had several campuses that were miles apart and we visited all of them. I photographed in the kitchen, operating rooms, administrative offices, day care, senior care facility, maintenance shop, VIP meetings, etc. I shot a ton of film using color and B&W slide film. (Yes, there was a B&W slide film. Don’t remember the brand.) And we were exhausted at the end of the day.
Eventually select images were printed in the annual report and a slide show was produced. Shown above is one of the images taken in the morning. To see a few more from the day I created a web gallery – A Day in the Life. Take a look and tell me what you think.
