‘Thalidomide’ is a touching photography set by famed photographer Greg Williams that captures people who suffered from birth defects attributed to this controversial drug.

According to Wikipedia, “Thalidomide was sold in a number of countries across the world from 1957 until 1961 when it was withdrawn from the market after being found to be the cause of what has been called “the biggest medical tragedy of modern times”.

The drug reportedly resulted in birth deformities to more than more than 10,000 children in the late 50s and early 60s.

Greg Williams captures shows how these people affected by Thalidomide have embraced their condition and have a positive and happy outlook to life.
