Artist Statement

Heather Patterson is an adult and pediatric emergency physician and photographer from Calgary, Alberta. When the pandemic struck, Patterson was granted unrestricted access to photograph the behind-the-scenes moments at Calgary hospitals.

Intimate images of healthcare workers, support staff, patients and families, shed light on the compassion, teamwork, and even joy that can be found amidst tragedy. The images and stories highlight love and loss, kindness and grace, and the importance of connection, delivering a message that is relevant and critically important during our current health-care crisis.

Photographs from this project went on to become Shadows and Light, her recent book publication. They have also been featured in Macleans, where they were a finalist for a National Magazine Award, and the Calgary Herald and on CBC, CityNews, Global News, and CTV. Patterson has received the Award for Medical Journalism from the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians and her work has been featured in medical journals and presented at conference and grand rounds across Canada.
