An old woman who recently lost her family by plague in her house in the village of Tsinjoarivo, Tsiroanomandidy region, Madagascar. When the family of F. was stricken by the plague, the quarantine, the compulsory preventive treatment and the pest control in their house were not the worst ordeals for the ones who survived. The loneliness and social stigma coming from the neighbors and friends is the strongest mark of shame to be fought. She strongly said that the disease was not plague as the doctors claimed, but a curse cast on her families by some unknown sorcerer. I took this picture during a recorded interview a year after the death of her relatives.
