Recently, Hamilton College, located in Clinton, New York, commissioned me to photograph one of their Philadelphia-based alumni, Dr. Christine Laine. In celebration of alumni accomplishments for Hamilton's bicentennial year, this photograph appears on their website and in their alumni magazine.
Dr. Laine, class of 1983, is the editor of the Annals of Internal Medicine, a widely distributed and cited medical journal that is published every two weeks by the American College of Physicians in Philadelphia. In addition to editing one of America's major medical journals, Dr. Laine continues to see patients at Jefferson Medical College.
I used the shelves of historic bound copies of the Annals as a background while having Dr. Laine hold a current issue. We set up lighting to highlight her in this environment.
As editor, she is overseeing the creation of an iPad version of the Annals of Internal Medicine.
