"Man + Doctor" is Nicholas Wadley's wordless story of encounters with doctors, from the patient's attempts to avoid the scalpel, to, once surgery becomes inevitable, watching himself learn to cope with days and weeks spent in hospital beds.
Nicholas Wadley taught art history at Chelsea School of Art, London, from 1962 until 1985. As an art historian, his published books include Noa Noa, Gauguin s Tahiti and Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Drawing.
