Homage To Oliver Sacks

1993. Vintage silver gelatin photograph, titled, signed and dated in ink in lower margin, photographer’s blind stamp in image lower right, signed and dated in ink in photographer’s stamp verso, 34.1 x 26.1cm. Minor scuffing.

This image is most likely a reference to Oliver Sacks’ book, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, published in 1985. The title of the book comes from a case study concerning a man with visual agnosia (impairment in visual recognition).

Oliver Sacks (1933-2015) was a celebrated British neurologist, naturalist, historian of science and author. Ref: Wiki.
