I was commissioned to produce this campaign promoting software that allows easy collection of data for medical trials. The concept was to make an installation of the objects that define an individual’s life, in an art gallery setting. All shot for real in a set made by Andy Knight, this labour intensive project yielded great results. The zebra, Nairobi, was a highlight.

Langland commissioned me to produce a number of images showing clinical trials software devices in action. The software, designed by CRF, allows patients to input data regardless of their location and on numerous devices. The clean light feel of the shots, and deliberate removal from a location context gives an upbeat, aspirational tone to a sensitive concept.
