Altered black and white photo using pastels and chalk.

The images below are of an altered cage I did to increase awareness about human trafficking (labor, domestic, sex slaves). Our youth are committed to send $30 per month to an established organization in order to help restore a child or woman rescued from the sex slave industry.
The cage has images of sex slaves on one side and child soldiers (another form of slavery) on the other. There is a doll inside the cage (in chains) to represent the innocent children abused in this awful and quickly growing 'business'. This cage and other things I've altered stay in our youth room as a reminder that we must do all we can to abolish modern day slavery.
