Faces Behind Atrocity
11/1/20 – 3/28/21
The portraits and collected testimonies are part of ongoing work to tell the survivors’ stories. The Faces Behind Atrocity series involved seven girls of four different nationalities, ranging in age from 13 to 16. The girls were victims of forced labor, forced marriage, and sex trafficking. They were lured by promises of education, sold outright by family members and forced into domestic servitude or prostitution, or sent away by family to marry a stranger. Some girls were exploited by someone they already knew, such as a relative, a neighbor, or a friend. They were rescued from the horrors of the trafficking world and are in various healing processes. In addition to providing a visual representation of their resilience, beauty, and strength, each survivor recorded a written testimony of how they were led into trafficking and the atrocities they faced.
Faces Behind Atrocity aims to be a tool for advocacy and learning. The series seeks to engage with an audience to challenge common myths about human trafficking and foster a dialogue about the root causes.
