Royal Ontario Museum Displays Dr. M. Nowaczynski’s “House Calls with my Camera” Documentary

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM)  in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, will display, from May 15 to October 11, 2010, a series of powerful and poignant portraits of elderly patients of Toronto physician Dr. Mark Nowaczynski. The 36 black and white photos document the house-bound patients’ problems including lack of medical and supportive home care services.

Dr. Mark Nowaczynski gave the following eye-opening comments:  “If we didn’t go to these individuals, they wouldn’t get any health care because they can’t come to us. They would fall through the cracks. These are hidden worlds, people who cease to exist who have no voice. One day this will be you and I. You are not looking at an exotic species in another world – you are looking at your future.”

As a visitor to this photo essay exhibition, you will experience a photographic journey into the lives of four patients captured by the lens of Dr. Nowaczynski during his “House Calls with my Camera” visits.
