BEAUTY: Photography--Erik Ravelo
"BEAUTY" might not be the right heading for this, but it is too meaningful and honest not to share. In Erik Ravelo's new raw photographic series Intocables (Untouchables), he accurately depicts the ways in which we as a species consume and destroy our weakest and most helpless members: our young. And that is not meant to be a facile comment; the ramifications and weight of all the conditions and issues that contribute toward this indirect--and in some cases very direct and quit deliberate--slaughter are in each photo. Ravelo's site says, "The Right to Childhood Should be Protected."
