A Fortunate Man
Working with photographer, Julian Hughes, and a company of emerging artists from the East Midlands, Michael is making a new piece inspired by John Berger’s book, A Fortunate Man. For this seminal 1967 publication, writer John Berger and photographer Jean Mohr documented the work of Dr John Sassall. Now to mark its 50th anniversary, we want to explore parallels between the original book and the NHS today. Commissioned by New Perspectives, the project runs from April to September 2017 and will tour in 2018 to mark the 70th anniversary of the NHS. Showcased at the National Rural Touring Conference in 2017.
