This magazine wanted to compare french and finnish healthcare systems, so they sent a journalist to investigate, and together we met a finnish doctor working in France. Yes, I swear, this is true. After all, Europe is like one big country, with nearly free circulation of goods and workers too. So I should not be so surprised.
So Dr. L (I'll keep her name private) was the perfect person for this study. She's working with 2 french colleagues in a little village in South of France, and she also visits old persons in a public geriatric. This giving her a wide knowledge of how our system works. We followed her during her morning visits to patients, to the regular job at her office in the afternoon, and more than often night... The number of general doctors in France is getting really low in some rural places, and that makes hard and long days of work for all of them. Hopefully they are here to take care of us.
This was a nice photo journalist job, something I don't do a lot, even if we try to shoot our sport lifestyle stuff in the same way. After all, it's just trying to make our pictures as meaningful as possible. The only big difference was the subject, trying to be as less intrusive as possible, with old persons sometimes in really good shape, or sometimes in their really late days. A strong remembrance that you have to enjoy every day of your daily life...
