“The Unsung Heroes”

Whenever one thinks of a hospital, the only thing that comes to mind is the doctors. It’s as if the whole show is run by the doctors and the doctors alone. Little do they know that in reality they couldn’t be further from the truth.

To keep a hospital functional, an army of people who are specifically trained in their respective tasks are required to man certain stations. Each job plays an equally important role contributing to the medical health system we have today.

After working for almost two years in a hospital, I have come to realize and appreciate the people working quietly behind the scenes. Hence, this photography project entitled 'The Unsung Heroes'.

This photography project represents my insight working as a houseman of a hospital. There is a tall hierarchy system in the hospitals of Malaysia and being right at the bottom of it gives us a very interesting perspective. 

I hope this project would be able to enlighten the people about the many roles in a hospital and their contribution. In hopes that a little kindness & gratitude can be shown to the Unsung Heroes at your next hospital visit.


P/S: Having to take the photos after working hours and synchronizing my schedule with the respective subjects, it has taken me weeks to months for the completion of the project thus far. I do realize that there are many other roles not mentioned yet. I hope to be able to photograph the many other Unsung Heroes of a hospital in the near future.
