The Original Photos
Insane Asylum


Sometimes  happens  to
meet  some stories  that 
we would'nt like to meet
at all.    
Stories without smile, without joy neither hope. 
There's no space for gratification or pleasure, in these  kind  of stories, because there's  no space 
for pleasure or gratification where pain fills up the scene.





... when photos became an extension of memory...
