interior analysis

Martin Bergmann, Carnegie Hill

In recent years, Dr. Mark Gerald, a 64-year-old psychoanalyst who practices on Manhattan's Upper West Side (what analyst doesn't?), noticed similarities in other analysts' offices. But Dr. Gerald was more struck by the differences. He remembers, for instance, the office of an analyst who dismissed the notion of basic aggression despite the fact that on the mantelpiece behind him sat a row of hideous masks.

Dr. Gerald has taken advantage of his insider status to tackle a subject previously closed to portrait photography: psychoanalysts in their workplaces. To date, he has photographed 55 analysts, more than half of them representing a legendary breed: the New York psychoanalyst.

Leahn Nguyen, Ph.D., Gramercy Park

Luis Feder, Ph.D., Mexico City

Darlene Ehrenberg, Ph.D., Upper East Side

Dr. Gerald's images are on display in an exhibition titled, “In the Shadow of Freud’s Couch: Photographic Portraits of Psychoanalysts in Their Offices,” at Iptar West, the offices of the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research at 140 West 97th Street. The exhibition runs through April 1.

I think I'd pay Dr. Darlene a visit. Her place looks comfy.

The part about the scary masks is interesting. Here in Toronto at the Centre for Mental Health there used to be all these scary cut-outs of people standing on the lawn of the grounds. That would freak me out at night.

Very clever post. Wish I could see the rest.

This is such a wonderful idea. Dr. Bergmann and I would get along well - we have the same love of antique kilims.

This is fascinating. I've never been in a psychoanalyst's office! It turns out I would be dying to rifle through their stuff (what does that mean!?)
