From time to time a nice surprise comes along in the way of a commission for an original photo essay. You know, the kind of 10-page essay in a glossy magazine that the previous photo generation sings ‘remember when’ anthems about, and the kind that led many of us into this world of photography. I received such a surprise in November when Austin Monthly’s photo director, Cory Rivademar, called to tell me they were starting work on the January 2013 doctors issue and wanted a photo essay in black-and-white showing a day-in-the-life of the residents at University Medical Center at Brackenridge. A commission with proper budget and time on a day-in-the-life essay of anything, and my vintage garb was feeling suitable all of a sudden.

With wordcraft by Sarah Thurmond and a fantastic play by Austin Monthly’s edit and design team, the article paces wonderfully and readers get to learn about this sought-after residency program at one of Texas’ oldest public hospitals.

Thanks to Dr. Beth Miller, Steve Taylor, and the residents at University Medical Center at Brackenridge for their hospitality and accomodation.

The January, 2013 issue of Austin Monthly is on newsstands now.
