George Georgiou Serbia/Kosovo Psychiatric Ward Photo Essay

There are a lot of things we put up on CVLT Nation that are intentionally terrifying, gory and brutal – but no other post I have done yet has shaken me like these photos by George Georgiou taken in psychiatric wards in Serbia and Kosovo between 1999 and 2002. The despair and loneliness in these photos is tangible in a way that makes me nauseas. They are hard to look away from, and trying to imagine the stories behind the lives being lived is painful. There is something tragically beautiful about them at the same, and important to recognize in humanity and history. We are cruel to the weak, and at the same time we tell ourselves that they will inherit.
