April 30, 2011 1 comment

These series of photographs, which were taken by Pablo Bartholomew in 1975. These raw pictures show the derelict and desperate conditions in which the female subject lives in, yet, her only focus is the object in her hands.

The first image describes the woman’s condition, she is so frail.  Even at her destitute state, her only will to go on is to take in more morphine

She smiles at her dog, yet gets to the important matters. The morphine has to be prepared. 

Her joy as she finally loads it.
