Home John Berger A Fortunate Man: The Story of a Country Doctor. Jean is one of the truly great photographers,’ Berger told me, ‘utterly invisible, blending into the background like a lamp-stand – the perfect man to sit in on medical consultations.

Ordinary doctors like this fortunate man always were, and still are, extraordinary. John Berger writes about a living, real person
Ordinary doctors like this fortunate man always were, and still are, extraordinary. There's a lot we can learn about both the practice of Medicine and the place of GPs in this essay. This book should be on the Reading List for all medical students, and all doctors in training. John Berger writes about a living, real person. In his own career of a rather isolated rural doctor John Sassall reveals his own hopes, pains, sufferings, struggles as a human being,similar to his patients. He interacts with them in a deep psychological and human contact not far away from being compassion and love in a deep sense.
So the landscape is almost virgin and primordial, but at the same time, you get this very forward-thinking, almost revolutionary, doctor John Sassall. He’s kind of as much an alchemist as he is a doctor. It’s almost a nature documentary, this little microcosm of the country doctor as viewed through the lens of John Berger. The Best Books of Landscape Writing. Dan Richards, Berger was an astonishingly skilled and observant witness of anything he turned his gaze onto. The best books on Medicine and Literature.
It is less biography than philosophy, and it extends beyond doctors toward all people and their actions. This is not to say that John Berger's observations of Dr. Sassall's life can be applied to all people. Much is specific to Sassall's identity as a doctor. His depression, Berger claims, is a result of "the suffering of his patients, and his own sense of inadequacy. Additionally the photographs of Jean Mohr bring a sense of hyperrealism to this documentary of one Doctor's practice, the world in which he lives, and the lives he cares for.
