Vegan. Straight edge. Atheist. 21. Mothkin.

Deleted many times under the names bill--maplewood, sevenheads, and self-pollution. I have too many interests in things to have a cohesive look. I mostly post art, comics, horror manga, oddities, photography, sculpture, moths, insects, nature, rocks and minerals, fetish imagery, medical oddities and medical ephemera, and film.

In the first photo it’s 1987. Heart surgeon Dr. Zbigniew Religa monitors a patient’s vitals after a 23-hour heart transplant, performed with outdated equipment in Poland. One of Religa’s colleagues who helped him perform two transplants in an all-night session rests in the corner. In 1987 James Stanfield’s photo of Zbigniew Religa was proclaimed a photo of the year in National Geographic.

In the second photo it’s 2013. Tadeusz Żytkiewicz is the patient from the famous National Geographic photo of Dr. Religa’s. He outlived the surgeon who gave him a new life. (Religa died in 2009.)
