Together We Can End Human Trafficking
Together We Can End Human Trafficking - This awareness of modern slavery in West Bengal and hopes to educate people on human trafficking and enlist their help to end slavery. It was inspired by a photograph that was taken by Brooke Shaden when she worked with Kolata Sanved, an organisation that helps survivors of trafficking with dance therapy. Shaden partnered with the women and the girls to create a series of photographic self-portraits in which they each chose a pose that they felt represented their stories. Sangeeta portrayed herself having her ankle gripped by a menacing hand, while she reached toward another hand for support.
