Bad Doctors - Deja-vu
My sister died last year due to a life of poor decisions and practice of a long list of doctors in her life. She received some of the most severe treatments to science, including doses of drugs so strong they destroyed her kidneys.
I'm so sorry for her lot in life... I'm still trying to work it out on paper. I found photos of various Nazi doctors from the concentration camps, and drew their likeness in my scratchy style. I can't help but equate her treatment as a systematic brutalization. She died from her mistreatment.
Doctors Mengele, Brandt, Clauberg... the worst. The repetition of poor treatment on innocent beings - Deja-vu.
These photos are part of a larger project I'm working on dealing with the life of my sister.
