Dare to enter the darkness to bring another into the light
This is another image I created to help shine more light on the child/human trafficking which goes on in the world everyday. Clearly this is a bigger issue than the media report on if you look at the stats – the fact the media don’t report on it is also alarming.
The image shows a faceless figure holding an abused teddy bear (which I use to symbolise childhood in all of these related pictures) whilst a you can see a dark room with a door slightly opening up in the background. Over one of the shoulders you can just about see the silhouette of some shackles, whilst on the other side there is a faint image of a bedroom window with a child’s rocking horse on the floor.
The figure can either represent the abuser who has stolen the child’s innocence & life whilst holding it in their hands, or represent the child who is now an adult and lost their childhood completely, feeling hollow & empty.
