At first I had no idea how to approach these medical devices with my camera. They were hard and shiny and full of buttons and LCD screens. They seemed cold and sterile. But I know they also serve a great purpose: saving lives by allowing people, such as cancer patients, to get their drugs in a safe and efficient manner.
So I started to think of the machinery from a more compassionate point of view. As I unpacked the pumps and lined them up on a table, I tried to see their unique personalities.
Call me crazy, but, it worked for me.
Just another day at the studio*, then, making portraits of
pumps people. Making portraits.
The client was pleased.
* My studio now, since I move out of the Livestock Exchange Building, is any place that will work. I made these photographs in my apartment, using the natural light that comes in through the blinds.
