I was starstruck that I would have a chance to photograph Fumiko Hayashida, the mother in the iconic photograph depicting the internment of Japanese American citizens from Bainbridge Island during WW II. I spent the morning photographing mostly diabetic patients at a Beacon Hill Medical Clinic that was acquired by Swedish Medical Group, my client, for their annual report. The attending doctor worked at the clinic for over 30 years, and both he and his partner treated a number of Japanese patients who resettled on Beacon Hill upon return to Seattle from their internment. I stayed for the afternoon appointment with Fumiko who was brought in for a check up by her son and daughter-in-law. The nurse called ahead to ask them for permission to make the photograph for use by Swedish, which they granted. February 21, 2014, Fumiko was 103 years old. (She has since passed away November 2, 2014). I had only a few moments to capture her arrival and the nurse greeting her in the window-lit reception area before she was wisked off in her wheel chair to the exam area. The resulting image became the first photograph in my new website slideshow.
