Artist Statement

When genocide occurs there is often anonymity in the vastness of statistical casualties. I wanted to show specific faces of genocide to express to the viewer that there is a human being behind every single number in the vast genocides that have taken place around the world. I urge the viewer to see the faces of the people who have died in such vast numbers. I don't want them to lose their identity.
