Felix: Montreal, 1983



Felix: Montreal 1983 Posted by Hello

Way back in the 1980’s I worked as a medical photographer at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal. Everybody who has ever worked anywhere long enough says “I want to write a book about this place”. Not being much of a writer, pictures seemed to be the weapon of choice. During the course of 18 years, I managed to photograph most of the employees for a personal project that never went anywhere. Felix was one of them. He worked as a maintenance technician in the heating area and regularely visted my studio. Eventually he retired, but still managed to visit me from time to time and hang out for a while. This picture was taken in a stairwell as we passed each other on my way to the operating room.
