National Physicians’ Day

Retired now for 10 years I couldn’t be more proud of all my physician colleagues on this National Physicians’ Day. The little statue of Hippocrates in my studio with the Hippocratic Oath behind him reminds me everyday of his first aphorism “vita brevis, ars longa”“life is short but the art is long”. As the “vita” gets ever more “brevis” I thank and honor them all for their life-long compassion, dedication and evermore remarkable skills.

Quoting from my “about” page:

“The art of medicine has three factors said Hippocrates… “the disease, the patient, the physician..”. a relationship that is as true today as it was over two millennia ago.”

Studio 365: Day 35

Day 35 ii

Hippocrates II

I thought I would post this variation of yesterday’s image, captured with light painting photography in the studio using an iPhone flashlight, together with a view of the set up. The additional light was added in Photoshop Elements using an airbrush and the text duplicated and then inverted to create the mirrored effect.
