Photographing Medicine: Images and Power in Britain and America since 1840 (Contributions in Medical Studies)
by Christophe Lawrence
Publisher's Description
In this scholarly work, Daniel M. Fox and Christopher Lawrence examine the history of medical photography, especially in regard to its official function of depicting health care to a curious and suspicious public. Through a careful analysis of the evolving styles and uses of medical photography they analyze the rise of the medical establishment in the United States and England from 1840 to the present. Includes a wide variety of photographs, ranging from attempts to "sanitize" the image of early hospital care to photographs of medical oddities.
