 In the Opinion video above, Martin Schoeller, a photographer who is best known for his portraits of famous and powerful people, aims his lens at a different population: ordinary Americans who have been crushed by exorbitant hospital bills they didn’t see coming. 
 
 In Mr. Schoeller’s short film, patients describe the painful financial consequences they faced after being blindsided by costly bills. 
 
“We depend on hospitals in our communities to take care of us,” Mr. Schoeller said. “But our hospitals are putting profits before patients.”
