Portraits of an Emergency-Chapter 2 is a collection of images created by firefighter, paramedic, and artist Daniel Sundahl. These images offer a rare insight to the world of emergency services and reflect the emotions felt by many first responders. Inspiration is drawn from actual emergencies attended by the artist. -Foreword By Dr. Jeffrey T. Mitchell, Ph.D., CCISM Clinical Professor of Emergency Health Services at the University of Maryland. From the subdued background shades of greys, blacks, reds, and browns to the vibrant silvers, blues, yellows, golds, reds and greens of the details, Dan Sundahl’s art speaks to the hearts of emergency personnel worldwide. It reminds us that we have “been there” in similar scenes. Dan’s art yanks our memories out of the isolated places in our minds where we think we have successfully insulated ourselves from the stark realities of the past that might disturb our predictable and “controllable” routines. The memories of past experiences are always accompanied by emotions that may discomfort us in the present. We remember feelings of anxiety, concern, and sometimes fear in the face of awesome danger. We remember moments of overwhelming fatigue when we have given our all and then found ourselves giving even more than we thought was possible. Our memories include scenes of human depravity and cruelty beyond our comprehension. We have felt disappointed, guilty, and depressed when our efforts failed. Most of us have faced the anguish of lives lost especially when those lives were the young ones who had so much more living to do. Dan Sundahl’s art, however, is not about being beaten down and despondent. It is about human resilience and recovery of the human spirit. When you study Dan’s art you see it is about hope and understanding, faith, and the courage to get up again. The art in this book is about the men and women who take a stand against evil and selfishness, cruelty and the disregard of humanity.
