The article discusses the chromogenic prints of Lilla LoCurto and William Outcault from in terms of disease maps. Among the prints cited are, the "ApianusII BL3cyl7_98," "Karchenko-Shabanova BS1sph(8/6)7_98," and "Polyconic BS1sph(8/6)7_`98." The author notes that the prints, in which by LoCurto and Outcault mapped themselves upon the world, address the anonymity of the disease maps in which the individual with disease disappears. He also believes that the portraits which put the person and landscape together illustrate the relations between the environment, disease and the patient.
