A distant cry | China

The shadow after the darkness is hanging over the heart of every mother who is unfortunately trafficked. In the darkness, it seems that there are countless pairs of men’s hands coming to them.

The poster depicts a bloodied prisoner chain belonging to a victim, who is implied to be nearby but out of the frame. The blood from the victim is trickling to the middle of the poster, where the victim has written the words “stolen people, stolen dreams” in their blood. It is up to the viewer to decide the fate of the victim, and if they were dragged away from the scene. Similarly to many unfortunate victims of human trafficking, all that remains is the broken pieces to tell us their story.

This poster has taken inspiration from the harmful processes within the fish industry to illustrate the devastating realities of human trafficking. Like the fish in the ocean, victims of human trafficking are forcefully taken out of their homes and environments in large quantities and then placed in unnatural and uncomfortable conditions to be sold. They go from being free individuals in their natural habitats to enslaved commercial products in a matter of days.
