The Los Intocables photo series is utterly provocative. It deals with an incredibly difficult subject matter in a rather creative way. Addressing institutional child abuse, it shows guilty adults forming a cross off of which the innocent children hang off of. Essentially, the images bring to mind Jesus.

Shot by Erik Ravelo, a Cuban-born artist and creative director currently working in Fabrica, the Benetton Group Communication Research Center, the Los Intocables photo series is sub-headed by “The Right to Childhood Should Be Protected." Although the Los Intocables photo series takes an artistic path when addressing this devastatingly common occurrence, it brings to light in a harsher way the people, who are supposedly trusted in general, behind such disgusting acts. It revolves around such institutions as tourism, healthcare, religion, school and military. Stats for Provocative Child Abuse Photography Trending: Older & Mild
