Summary

Dupont visited Angola in 1993. "Civil war was raging and in between trips to the frontlines I spent time photographing a mental asylum in the capital Luanda. I wanted to explore the dark corridors of madness; the damage that war inflicted on the human psyche. A place so vile and horrific, I faced my own fears, disgust and intrigue in order to capture life itself inside Angola's broken minds. ... Twenty years later I journey into my archive vault making a new edit and creation."--Page [250]
