'Nello 3

By david deveson  
As many of you who have followed this series of photographs will know, 'Nello lives in a hospice for sufferers of AIDS.
'Nello goes from moments of declaring that enough is enough and refuses to take his medications but then, with care and attention from the social workers, he returns to believing once again that maybe it is worth it and starts to take his medications once again.
Yesterday was a good day as you can see from this shot.
Let's hope there are many more like this.

This is a powerful series that gives us an insight into the lives of others in a sensitive but thought-provoking manner.
