1987 年，波蘭著名◥的外科醫生Zbigniew Religa在完成了一臺◆耗時23小時的心臟也是眉头皱起移植手術後，仍守候在手術臺邊，密切關註著∩生命監測設備，而他的助手由於疲倦已經蜷縮在墻角邊睡著了。
-he got the perfect shot. He’d captured the anxious eyes of Dr. Zbigniew Religa tracking the vital signs of a heart-transplant patient. “I never let him out of my sight, never turned my back on him,” he says. “This was the payoff.”
-It was 1987, in an outmoded operating room in post-Soviet Poland. Stanfield was looking for an image that would portray the critical state of the country’s free health- care system—and that’s exactly what he got.
-His lens not only focuses on a dedicated surgeon’s eyes, but also on a patient hooked up to technologically outdated equipment. Stanfield also includes a weary staff member (far right) sleeping after assisting Religa with two transplants during an all-night session. “Each of these elements,” says Stanfield, “gives dimension and drama to the photograph, while helping tell a story.
-“In this day and age you need more than a pretty photograph, you need information,” he adds.
-But before a photographer can get that kind of information, they need to put in a lot of time. Stanfield studied Religa carefully, established a bond of trust, and then assumed a quiet presence in the surgeon’s surroundings.
-“My skill probably lies in my ability to enter into the flow of people’s lives,” he says.
2009年Religa醫生去世，享年 70 歲，照片中的★另外一位主角，手術墨麒麟啊墨麒麟臺上心臟移植成功的老人Tadeusz ?ytkiewicz依然健在，已經82歲，他曾經三次你就先让烈阳军团心臟病發作，情況嚴重。因為當時已經◣61歲高齡，之前沒有在這個年齡段成功移植心臟的先例，沒有醫生有膽量做這個手術，最後Zbigniew Religa接下了他並完成了手術。
主演Tomasz Kot和當年的Zbigniew Religa簡十级仙帝直如出一轍。
