‘Los Intocables’ – Stories of Children around the World

Sadly, this won’t be one of the happiest or positive articles. It will be an article about humanity at its worst. Metaphorically speaking – and probably for some people, realistically speaking – we all have our safe place. Not the same for many many children around the world.

A couple of years ago, Cuban born artist Erik Ravelo has developed a photography project called  “Los Intocables (The Untouchables) — The Right to Childhood Should Be Protected.”

Here are the pictures, with a message more powerful than words. Two years passed and probably nothing much has changed. This needs to change, though.  Faster and definitively.

“The first image refers to the dangers of chemical weapons like the nuclear meltdown in Japan. The second, refers to the trafficking of organs on the black market, where most of the victims are children from poor countries. The third, obesity, blaming the big fast food companies. The fourth image depicts pedophilia in the Vatican. The fifth one refers to the war in Syria . The sixth depicts  child sexual abuse in tourism in Thailand. And lastly, the seventh picture makes reference to weapons free in the U.S.” (Adapted from Saudis in USA)
Until next time, open your eyes and your ears to what the world has to tell you!
