Patient : Portraits from a Doctor's Surgery
CHRIS REID is a GP in Kerikeri and an elected member of the Northland DHB. Originally from the UK, Chris trained at the University of Newcastle Medical School before spending 10 years in the Royal Marines. He emigrated to New Zealand in 2004 with his wife and two border terriers, and began to develop his interest in portrait photography. This led to the concept of photographing the patients he consulted in his GP practice, giving a unique insight into the doctor–patient relationship. One of these photos won the People’s Choice Northland BDO Art Award in 2013.
