The Untouchables – A shock photography project for the protection of children

“Los Intocables“, or The Untouchables, is a shock photography project created by the Cuban photographer Erik Ravelo and the Brazilian artistic director Daniel Ferreira, to raise awareness of child protection, and about the various attacks against children through the world: sexual abuse, shootings in American schools, sex tourism, war or nuclear disaster or even obesity and fast food and black market organ trade.

The children are depicted in a vulnerable pose, pinned up against the backs of adults in a pose reminiscent of the crucifixion. The subheading to this provocative series is: “The Right to Childhood Should be Protected”. Ravelo attempts to speak for those who cannot properly articulate their pain. The sick, twisted games that adults play can come at a cost to future generations and Ravelo’s series gives a voice to those children who get caught in the crossfire.  Source:

Updated on June 12, 2014: The original making of video from The Untouchables was removel from YouTube and the artist page was banned from Facebook. But I found one short video on this channel.
