This poster by Columbian designer Victor Manuel Barrera got my attention.
“I wanted to highlight a problem that lingers long after countries have been at war. Planted like seeds of death and mutilation, land mines are indiscriminate, making victims of soldiers and civilians, children and adults. Most people who activate these mines will die, and those who survive often require amputations, leaving an imprint of indelible pain in their minds and bodies.”
Victor’s design is one of 122 posters featured in the Graphic Advocacy exhibition.
“Graphic Advocacy: International Posters for the Digital Age 2001–2012 showcases a selection of 122 posters to offer the public a chance to experience this magnificent body of empathetic and visually compelling messages for our time.”
I couldn’t find a link for Victor’s website, unfortunately.
