Smile in Disguise according to Tomas Karkalas from Klaipeda, Lithuania

“When you look for the good in others, you discover the best in yourself.”

~ Martin Walsh

The windows hide people with the psychiatric disorders from the well-groomed passersby.  The case-histories absorb the stories of the wish to be and lock the passions in a secret of the stifling archives behind bars.  The heavy silence would reign if not the art therapy …-  have a look at  the jolly colors below, at the smile in disguise. This picture was made by a patient who didn’t call himself the artist, but silently inhabited the space under the window.  I couldn’t pass by so took my camera…
