When the Prognosis Changes
About the Artwork
“Sharing news of an illness with a patient often occurs in phases. As the information is gathered, the story can shift towards hope or darkness. This image of a sky in the early evening reminds me that what we see often depends upon what we are hoping to hear.”
Lisa Gussak has been exploring the creative medium of photography for the past seven years. She enjoys connecting images from the natural world to her work as a family physician. “Walking with my camera gives me the opportunity to observe the natural world, to see things as they appear in the moment and to reflect, all of which inform the care I provide to patients and their families.”
