Part 6 features photographs by Brooke Bachelor, a second-year osteopathic medical student from Carol Stream, IL.

Brooke says photography inspires her because an “immense amount of information can be contained within one image, and I like to present a lens through which audiences can view my world and the perspective of others. Additionally, looking at my own photographs allows me to reflect upon how certain life experiences have shaped my path and have undeniably defined the way in which I view and interact with the world. These photos keep me in touch with the depth of the human spirit and my other passions outside of medicine such as travel and music, and serve as a reminder of the importance of balancing school and our other passions, even as busy people. Our patients are multifaceted, and so are we!”

“Statement in the desert” – Brooke took this photograph at Burning Man in Black Rock City, NV, in 2013.
