Another from the 'living work of art' created by Kostas Tsoklis (The Last Leper) on Spinolonga Island in Crete. The idea of the exhibition is to turn the island into a work of art. The islands last use was as a leper colony although its history goes back centuries before that. Here, last century, lepers lived, loved, had children, and died - all in abject poverty and as social outcasts. Treatment was often hit and miss and involved many painful injections - here for more info.
I have several of these I like - I'll try and post them this week.
