Hudson's prize-winning and ground-breaking collection, "Medic". "Explores the tenderness of human relationships during illness and recovery. Each image is beautifully crafted and meticulously staged on hand-built sets. The viewer is transported to a world (the early 20th century) where languishing patients are attached to antique apparatuses and fantastical, imagined medical equipment. The images are interspersed with touching, anonymous personal notes (handwritten or typed), reminiscences of those who have tenderly watched over ailing loved ones. While the visual language is imaginary, the language of love and loss is real. The heartbreak of seeing a loved one suffer and the desire to assuage pain with a tender word and loving touch are universal. Hudson's sensitive approach and compelling aesthetic infuse these subjects with new resonance" (Publisher's blurb). The grid-like rigor of each image and the sequence as a whole heightens (rather than diminishes) the sensation and feeling of pain and suffering of the illness depicted. An absolute "must-have" title for Jennifer B. Hudson (who now goes by Jennifer Thoreson) collectors. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online have serious flaws. A scarce copy thus. 20 plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 1934334138.
