In this exhibition Self-portraits, through multimedia, including photography, installations, animations and documentaries, we hope to unmask these vivid lives.
By using the voice of the photos, the exhibition unveils the dark side of the metropolitan and shows the toughness of the underprivileged in urban slums.
A child’s view of our world can be moving and transcend the limits of the lens. It gives us a vision into affection, social events and the community of these underprivileged neighborhoods, enhancing our understanding of a child’s participation in society.
This exhibition unveils a secret which has been hidden and opens a wound that has not healed. Treading the back alleys of the old neighborhoods, climbing on the trucks, stepping on the ruined staircases, crawling into packed cage homes, it serves as a conscious endeavor to disarticulate alienation and estrangement through a close encounter with these “invisibles” in our city.
