The artist has taken over 500 portraits of students, doctors, professionals, and other people in the past year, 24 of which will be installed in the medical school. Landmarks plan to publish a collection of the portraits in a phonebook-like catalog. Hamilton’s installation is set to be complete in January 2017.
