Part of The Reflections On An Age Of Anxiety Series. Suffer The Little Children is a Digital Collage which is currently detained in a 'Tender Age' camp near the US border. Over 2,000 distressed children have been forcibly seperated from their families and detained in cages as a punitive measure taken against those who would attempt to cross the southern border of the United States. When children and especially infants suffer prolonged periods of separation from their parents and other primary care givers, deep emotional trauma is usually the result and thats to say nothing of the other distressing circumstances and conditions at play here. Thankfully the American people and their public backlash has forced an ending to this cruel policy. Hopefully those children can be identified and reunited with their loved ones soon.
Part of the Reflections On An Age of Anxiety Series. No Direction Home is a Digital Collage which shivers at the plight of Refugees, Global Displacement and Homelessness. Whether its from Religious Persecution, Conflict, Environmental Catastrophe, Economic Distress or The Housing Crises, from Africa and The Middle East to The Caribbean, and on to our own streets in Ireland people are being uprooted from their homes at record levels. As of late 2016 The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has found that there are 65.6 million people who have been displaced from their homes worldwide. This is the largest number ever on record.
