Fire 0001
photograph
Liansong Chen, MD

 

To remember the worst wildfire in California history, the artist took thousands of photos in the community around the Santa Rosa Medical Center. From the artist: "Time flies, the rebuild starts. The disaster occurs here and there, year after year. I wish for these photos to help us be more environmentally sensitive, more thankful for what we have, and engage in more preventive practices."

 

Dr Chen is Medical Director and a Pathologist at the Santa Rosa Medical Center in CA. More of Dr Chen’s photographs can be seen in this issue of The Permanente Journal.
