Prison | China

The poster depicts a broken guitar and a lion’s face behind the strings. The guitar and the lion represent the victims of human trafficking. Just like the guitar, victims’ lives are broken. Like the lion, victims of human trafficking are imprisoned. Victims are also angry. Red conveys anger. Besides, red also represents blood, which indicates that victims are harmed by human trafficking.

For my iteration of “Shadows After Dark” to raise awareness on human trafficking, I wanted to focus on the inhumanity of the transporting and selling of people as if they were products you could pick up at the store. I chose to illustrate a girl being trapped in a box as she’s being shipped from one location to another. No human should be trapped and treated in this way.
