Photographs: Wounded

Having my arm in a sling for a short period of time some years ago opened my eyes to others around me in similar situations. It was then I began to consider the possibility of producing a series of photographs of people on the street in similar situations. […] Photographically it became a challenge to turn interesting looking injuries into interesting photographs. These are not photographs you can set out to take. Sitting outside a hospital would be cheating.

Jesse Marlow has a book out documenting how people cope with their injuries on the street called Wounded. He’s put some photographs on his website from the book.
