Kristina Cancelmi has designed incredible illustrations that really bring the issue of human trafficking to light. Using the imagery of bar codes with weeping kids and women embedded, the message is powerful and hard-hitting.
Created for The Polaris Project, Kristina Cancelmi's work displays the sad truths about the world. The illustrations include the estimated number of people, mainly women and children, trafficked into America, how many American children are at risk of being sold into the sex industry and how many women and children are trafficked worldwide.
Kristina Cancelmi's art is not only stunning visually, but also in its purpose to help spread the message against human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Her work stands up for those that are treated as property rather than people.
