I am excited about this next series. It’s called “Rescue” and I will be using it to raise funds and awareness for a modern day abolitionist movement. I would appreciate your feedback about the emotions the images evoke.
Slavery is real, it’s now and it affects millions of men, women and especially children. There are organizations and individuals who have made it their mission to bring the light of hope to the oppressed. According to Love146 (an abolition movement) two children per minute are forced into slavery, 1,048,320 is the yearly result of this atrocity. Here is a list of twitter connections to anti-slavery organizations and individuals.
Psalm 23 says, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil…” or like Switchfoot sings, “The Shadow Proves the Sunshine”. You can’t have shadows without light. This series focuses on the darkness and tragedy of slavery and the light of hope for freedom that people who refuse to be silent can bring. Light also exposes acts that are only done in darkness, and while “Rabbit” and “Fly Away” focus on longing for escape, “The Monster” is about the terror that the victims must feel.
Please view the images and post your comments below. I may use your comment in promotional materials for the series.
