Hospital is a photographic essay showing hospital
life in Belgium, China, India, Congo, and the United States. Seasoned world
photographer Stephen L. Feldman has graphically documented hospitals across
nations as microcosms of sociocultural values. Essayist Karine Douplitzky,
an analytical writer and contributor to French television, adds context and
word pictures. Together, they have created a unique, attractive work. The
book is 11 in × 11 in × ¾ in with blood-red cover.
