Product Description


Inspirational. (Bill Robertson Saskatoon Star Phoenix 2003-12-13)

A collection of wonderful photographs... sure to be a hit with the medical community, could also be a wonderful reference book for photography students. (Joe Bryksa Winnipeg Free Press 2003-12-07)

Old fashioned photojournalism... a real overview of the medical life... We find ourselves drawn into the images and empathizing with the subjects. (Don Denton Victoria Times-Colonist 2003-12-14)

From the Author


This book is a unique presentation of powerful black and white photographs depicting medical professionals in their work environment during real life situations.

The photographs are accompanied by Sir William Osler quotations which apply the principals and practice of medicine and, written a hundred years ago, they still influence today's medical profession.

The photographs are the centerpiece of this book and are also an excellent learning example for those interested in photography. As all the photographs are taken without adding flash, they provide an insight into taking pictures by existing light.

Not only is this book a classic combination of pictures with Osler quotations for the medical profession, it is an ideal learning tool for photographers. It will be valued by medical and photography students as well as those practicing their profession.

Inspirational May 6 2013
By lawrence j, rosenblum - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A photo essay on the life and work of "the father of modern medicine", Dr Wiilian Osler. As a physician I found it highly informative and inspirational. It should be read by all physicians and prospective(student) physicians to inspire them to live up to the highest aspirations of our noble profession.. Also lay people who really want to understand what physicians really do should read this but especially the bureaucrats and politicians who treat us as just another group of "providers" ought to read this book. Think about this: would you let just a "provider" cut open your heart or your brain?
