Part III
Okegbala is a leprosy community made up of three small settlements and a hospital. In many ways it is like a normal village, except almost everyone that lives there has been affected by leprosy, or someone in their family has.

I spent three weeks there, and one of things I did was photograph those affected that attended church one Sunday. It was suggested by one resident that I should do it then as everyone would be dressed in their Sunday best and would look their smartest. Everyone got a copy of their portrait.

All of these were shot in April 2014.
