Ralph T. Hutchings

Biomedical Photographer

Mr. Hutchings was associated with The Royal College of Surgeons of England for 20 years. An engineer by training, he has focused for years on photographing the structure of the human body. The result has been a series of color atlases, including the Color Atlas of Human Anatomy, the Color Atlas of Surface Anatomy, and The Human Skeleton (all published by Mosby-Yearbook Publishing). For his anatomical portrayal of the human body, the International Photographers Association chose Mr. Hutchings as the best photographer of humans in the twentieth century. He lives in North London, where he tries to balance the demands of his photographic assignments with his hobbies of early motor cars and airplanes.
