Forget me | 2015

In a dossier found in the trash – about the lives of women attempting to quit lives of prostitution – , the small group photograph and the violently erased face of one of the women portrayed stood out. I cut up and enlarged the image of that face which (because it is unidentifiable) represents all the people that society proposes to keep invisible through its indifference and prejudice.
