15. Triumph of Life
The very photo you here was taken in the year 1987, a time when medical technology was not as advanced at it is now.
The surgeon picture seems far from being happy after a successful operation that lasted for over 23 hours.
His experience after the surgeon was really kicking in, this shows him that the first days are actually crucial for the forbearing evolution after surgeon of heart transplant. In the background, and worn out nurse can be seen taking a moment of rest.
We titled the photo “Triumph of Life” in respect for the work of surgeons that save lives. Even National Geographic see the as the picture of the year.
