"Thompson's Log" is a digital and contemporary re-creation of 19th century medical photography. Finnerty has created a narrative based on a fictional character "Dr. E. Thompson" who collects and records information of various diseases in his personal logbook. The project plays quirkily with the notions of medical science while photography made its first few steps. The images are created digitally are manipulated in such a way as to resemble early analogue photography and specifically portraits. The project aims to initiate a discourse for the viewer in relation to the ceaseless inventions in contemporary visual technologies.
