Priest’s visit

Revisiting an eye-opening experience from my childhood, I accompanied a Catholic priest visiting the sick and destitute members of his parish in the Mandraġġ area in Valletta. The area is a run-down, densely populated social housing estate struggling with high levels of unemployment, poverty and related social issues. Building empathetic relationships with individual subjects and a collaborative camaraderie with Fr Zaren Saliba (priest in charge) I was able to gain access and photograph very intimate and sensitive situations.
