ITEM | China

According to the survey, women and children are more likely to be abducted, and the proportion is also very high. The people in the poster are all covered with their mouths, indicating that they have been abducted and trafficked. They are commodities, no freedom, no speech, no rights, only to be chosen.

Silenced | Belgium

In my poster I am portraying all the women (but also men) who are being silenced due to human trafficking. The focus is put on the woman with a neutral background to really portray the victim. You can see she is tired, as the victim she has to obey. But we as a humanity are also tired. I purposely didn’t give het bruises or tears to avoid the clichés. Despite her situation, she is still a strong woman. I don’t mean to shock but to put the focus on her mouth and her silence. Silence can be very powerful.


The poster shows two children on swings in a birdcage and a bird flying to freedom. This symbolizes human trafficking of children mostly those who are forced to leave their innocent childhood and become adults at a very young age. It shows how children should be allowed to be children and not forced to work or become someone’s wife. These issues should concern us all and we should do our part in helping as much as we can.
