Bear Witness

By sherlob
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.

The photographer's eye at work. I covet this one.
