Suzukawa, Atsuko photographer who works as a psychological counselor at a hospital
There are variety of positions in a hospital. Each individual works for one's specialty.
However, the core concept among those professions, is "rescue".
Since, I am in the position of psychological rescue as a counselor, I do not know how to use these medical equipment and devices even though I know what they are for. So I feel somewhat alienated in the hospital. It is no use to compare positions. However, compare with other medical cares, it is difficult for me to address my role as a part of life-saving rescue. I look at the role to save a body as a thing exists outside of me.
Doctors have their medical equipment, and I have my words. If I think that I am touching a "person's" mind with my words, instead of touching a "patient's" body with these equipments, I am not being isolated in the hospital. I would do what I can do.
I would face with them without preconceptions.
