Title : L’Image Obscene / The Obscene Image - Parisian Hospital Break Room Graffiti
Authors : Gilles Tondini
Publisher : Mark Batty Publisher
Year : 2010
ISBN-13 : 9780981960074
Language : English, French

Description :
Concealed within several of Paris’ hospitals, strange paintings give testimony to one of France’s most singular subcultures.
In L'Image Obscene / The Obscene Image, photographer Gilles Tondini has documented these frenzied frescos, created by medical interns who use hospital break rooms to let off steam and maintain sanity as they work to save lives. The break rooms—known as salles de garde—the interns ignore the rules of decorum observed throughout the rest of the hospital, and create a new order—in the name of maintaining traditions, and, of course, to relieve stress.
