50 Shrinks

From the NY Times: “It took Sebastian Zimmermann, a psychiatrist on the Upper West Side, 13 years to produce Fifty Shrinks, a book of portraits depicting ‘therapists in their natural habitats.'”


My favorite quote from the slideshow comes from Martin Bergmann: “I have been an analyst for more than fifty years and I still find it astounding that every patient has something new to communicate…. It is as if an analyst is living not only his own life, but also the lives of countless other people. So I think I am making a bargain with death; I am cheating. I am living more than one life.”
