El Camino Hospital



Community Themes for

Health care






For this community-based hospital we created photographic exhibits expressing their local service area and the history of their institution.

There were four components to the exhibits:

• Community History
• History of El Camino Hospital
• Our Communities Children
• Personnel of El Camino Hospital



Community History
Exhibits show the combined history of the community served by El Camino Hospital: Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills and Cupertino. Prints are each hand-tinted black and white photographs














Children - birthing center


Photography of children in local area parks

Contemporary images of children photographed within the service district of the hospital in local parks were produced on commission for their new birthing center. By including recognizable locations the experience from the artwork becomes more intimate.






Images are up to mural size and framed in maple hardwood to match the finish schedule.






Personnel of El Camino Hospital

A series of images of the hospital staff, showing the diversity of services, disciplines of its medical and support team.

This series includes photographs of housekeeping, the pharmacy and staff members that do not always get the recognition of the front-line medical personnel, reinforcing the importance of every ones work at El Camino
