CLINIC explores the aesthetic of the medical world through contemporary photography. Going a stage beyond photojournalism, it showcases the work of eleven photographers, exploring their unique perspectives on this multi-faceted theme. Partly created through hospital artist-in-residence programs, these photographs portray an intimate vision of these spaces and their inhabitants.
Working in parallel with CLINIC, the creators of Useful Photography have selected a range of vernacular photographs related to medicine. As with all of Useful Photography's projects, this series comprises images originally made for utilitarian rather than aesthetic reasons. Instead of glossy photo-shoots, the work you see here is culled from scientific publications, communications documents and instruction manuals.
Photographers include Oivier Amsellem Constant Anee, Eric Baudelaire, Geoffroy de Boismenu, Christophe Bourguedieu, Jacqueline Hassink, Albrecht Kunkel, Ville Lenkkeri, Matthew Monteith, Mario Palmieri, Stefan Ruiz and Useful Photography (Hans Aarsman, Claudie de Cleen, Julian Germain, Erik Kessels, Hans van der Meer).
