The Forgotten People: The State of Chinese Psychiatric Wards

It's an investigation of the state of Chinese psychiatric wards, on which Lu Nan worked between 1989 and 1990. Possibly his strongest work to date, The Forgotten People is a journey through human misery. In the images, men and women of all ages, children included, are seen lingering in the institutions that host them, clearly malnourished and lying on wooden planks, some in chains. More harrowing than the appalling conditions they live in is the sensation of being in front of broken lives, individuals condemned by an ungrateful fate to an inescapable future of grief.
