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.
