Jason Hack, MD, FACEP, vice-chair of research and chief of the Division of Medical Toxicology at East Carolina University in Greenville, discovered a talent and passion for photography when his wife suggested he take his mind off work by getting outside more often. When he’s not teaching, he tries to exercise the right side of his brain by getting behind the lens. His subjects are varied but have three main areas of concentration: poisonous, medicinal, and benign blossoms (his images are featured regularly in ACEP Now); manhole covers; and his collection focused on the intersection of alcohol and roadway safety called “Images in Impact.” His botanical photos have been shown at galleries and museums in the Northeast, and his Impact collection has been prominently featured in AAA’s road safety training. The State of Rhode Island has used his imagery for its Department of Transportation Safety conferences and its Rhode Island Ripple Effect initiative for alcohol awareness. Dr. Hack explained that taking photographs is similar to being an emergency physician because it’s important to “keep your eyes open, notice things, pay attention. What is on the surface might not be all there is to learn.” He enjoys focusing on something beautiful or interesting and thinking about how to translate that feeling through his images.
