The Clínico Universitario hospital in Malaga city is currently holding an exhibition of the photographs which have been used for the Spanish Association against Cancer (AECC) 2019 calendar, called 'El arte de vivir' (The art of living).
The display can be viewed in the entrance to the consulting room area off the patio in the hospital's B tower. There are also information desks about the association and the calendars which feature these photographs can be purchased there as well.
To mark this initiative, volunteers and representatives of the AECC were recently invited to visit the biomedical research laboratory at the hospital, which is part of the Malaga Institute of Biomedical Research (Ibima). Those who took part in the guided tour of all the translational research departments included the manager of the AECC in Malaga, Pedro González, and some of the volunteers and nurses from different departments in the Clínico hospital.
This is the 14th year in which the photos from the annual calendar have been put on display at the hospital. This year 60 patients were featured in the 12 photos, most of whom are volunteers with AECC, and the aim was to reflect the positivity and determination of people who are affected by cancer to overcome their illness.
Each of the photos was inspired by classic works from famous creators, but they were given a personal and individual touch by the photographers, who provided their services free of charge.
