In his book Ways of Seeing, John Berger uses the medium of pictorial essays to make the reader think. Similarly, this post contains only images but is intended to raise questions and stimulate reflection as much as any of my other posts.
1. Consider what questions arise from viewing the images below
2. Reflect on how the images make you feel
3. Think about how other people see healthcare workers
Note: I have uploaded the images without information adjacent to them to avoid distraction, although I have included links to the source material in the further resources section at the end.
