Photography of the series Human
Date: 11/23/17 / Artist: 22. Bárbara Traver López de Ayala
"Human" is a series composed of different individuals where the face is hidden by different elements. Each subject is close to my environment, so that each piece that covers its face represents them. The choice of each of the elements is based on the first impression the subjects generated in me.
With this series I show the prejudice we fabricate when we face the obvious, the criticism we create on insufficient grounds. We catalogue people we meet every day, we tag them and forget about the complexity of each individual. I intend to create restlessness, to make the viewer think about who is hiding behind the mask and make him dig more into the totally anonymous person. Prejudice marks us for life and we forget that in the end we are all human.
