Haiti - Crying Girl
APRIL 2010

First image from the project series „TIMELINES”

Whether famines, war scenarios or natural disasters: children are their most vulnerable victims. Besides they are often exploited by the media in order to evoke consternation. Each of the selected children in this project is standing for one catastrophy and is supposed to bring eclipsed events back into mind; a „chronic of desasters” shall remind the spectators of fates and grave misfortunes that have already taken a back seat in the media. Every image is going through various treatment steps and media-related processes – they reflect the multimedia-based exploitation, slow it down and distort it.
