IF I PROMISE TO BE SILENT CAN I GO WITH YOU PLEASE

IF I PROMISE TO BE SILENT CAN I GO WITH YOU PLEASE

Digital Photography, Political / Social, Minimal, Mixed technique, 300x41x5cm
Part of the series 'Promises of Silence', IF I PROMISE TO BE SILENT CAN I GO WITH YOU PLEASE is composed of 14 small fluorlight boxes and tells the story of our need as human beings to be loved, understood, cherished and cared for. The image itself is that of a small girl in Nepal who had been a victim to sexual trafficking. She was forced into prostitution at the age of 6 and at 9 was now getting the much help she needed. She seemed to want to let go of her past, to cure and yet every fibre in her body just wanted to be loved... by anyone. She wanted to be a part of a family. Anyone's family. "If I promise to be silent can I go with you please" is an ode to Kanti... the girl from the Kathmandu Valley.

el concepto de tu trabajo es muy claro. El lenguaje fotográfico logra transmitir tu objetivo. Hay una fascinación del mundo oriental en tu trabajo. ¿sientes que esa cultura representa más intensamente el carácter denunciante y confrontativo de tus temas?
