Photographer's Note

City of Kandy.
Here the leprosy continues to rife, more than 2000 people would be infected by year in Sri Lanka, and 2,8 million individuals touched by this plague in the world.
This disease which causes terrible handicapping after-effects amongst other things is a disease which makes fear by its terrifying aspect on some patients. However the suffering of leprous is even more related to isolation than we impose to them, than with their disease itself and condemns them to a social exclusion.
This man with his tearing expression wandered in the streets, the two arms paralysed and the hands completely deformed.
Kind of picture which should help us to think positively and to forget our small daily annoyances...!!
