Photographer's Note

A Fanfare For The Working Man...


When I asked the nurse : "Why you do you use that archaic listening device instead of the modern stethoscope" - she answered:
' With the stethoscope I hear the rate of his heartbeat...
With the tube - I hear him talking to me '


A series made in 1980, upon permission granted by Pomeranian Medical Academy.

It was truly unlimited access permission and I was more than happy to leave a part of my heart in there as well as a pile of photographs to be displayed within the facilities of the Academy for the next few years.

The permission was an award for winning one of the photographic competitions in the city of Szczecin, Poland.
My stay at the hospital totaled ab. 12 hours, within two days. Only 30% of the negatives survived my defection from communist (back then) Poland.
About 15 photographs were uploaded to TE within three years period (only those compatible with the TOS regulations - that is)
All of them were deleted from TE by moderator on Dec. 14 2008, never to be re-activated (so far).
