THE SCIENTIST - Dr. Rob Atwill of the University of California, Davis, Veterinary Medicine Teaching and Research Center laughs at the stuffy stereotype of scientists. His speciality is epidemiology: tracking diseases and determining risk factors.

Dr. Atwill was primarily a field scientist so I didn't want to photograph him in a lab setting. He occasionally used a microscope so I did some photos of him with one but throughout the interview, I was most struck by his enthusiasm and humor. I used this photo as it showed his personality best.
