Patient and Painter


The Guardian excerpts ten images from Nick Wadley’s new book, Man + Doctor, a visual autobiographical account of the author’s time spent in various hospitals in the UK, his anxieties and observations laid bare on operating tables.

The book is published by Dalkey Archive Press, the house responsible for releasing one of Wadley’s earlier efforts: Man + Dog, a varied and hilarious exploration of the relationship between man and man’s best friend.
