Restoring smiles

by Luca Catalano Gonzaga

These portraits have been taken by Luca Catalano Gonzaga in Nassiriya (Iraq); they mainly depict women and children, victims of facial and body deformities due to burns caused by domestic accidents or unexploded ordnance, placed on a waiting list to be submitted to delicate plastic surgery interventions, by NGO Emergenza Sorrisi. For ten days, the photographer’s lens has captured moments of the preoperative screening.
