An attempt to look at medicine in a different way, in this case a model skeleton, was what inspired this series of photographs. These were taken in a classroom at Roger-Guindon Hall at the University of Ottawa.

As medical students, we tend to be creatures of habit. We’re taught to look for textbook patterns and classic signs and symptoms to help lead us to the right diagnosis.

In these photos, I wanted to appreciate the skeleton from a different perspective. Exploring medicine from a new angle can completely change your relationship with it, or even help you discover a connection you otherwise wouldn’t have made.
