 "Chained" by Arys P.
"In my picture the girl is in the dark, handcuffed with her mouth zipped shut. Her freedom is gone, and she makes money for her two new "Masters."


"Megalomaniac" by Kerigan C.
"The puppet represents a loss of innocence and control over one's life when in the hands of human traffickers. The man, of course, represents the trafficking rings."
