El camino de la Vergüenza,*The walk of shame*, is a photographic project carried out in Balkan, Serbian, Macedonian, Croatian and Bulgarian borders as well as on Greek territory.
The refugee crisis is a page of our history being written at this moment, a page that will be remembered for the mistakes made by European nations with these people. Maybe history books will tell it in their own way, but those who have been there will take care of telling the truth without covering it up.
The main idea of this project is to give voice to voiceless people, moving consciences using shocking images and showing a key moment of their lives: the exodus towards a peaceful place, away from the sound of bombs, a place where many of them will never arrive.
What will be your contributions used for
Thanks to the collected money, I shall set up the exhibition in one of the most prestigious exhibit spaces of Extremadura: the Asamblea building in Merida.
The exhibition will consist of 45 large-format photographs to be widly enjoyed. I shall also use the money to design the crowfounding rewards. I hope you will like them.
The exhibition will be opened in Merida and then will be travelled to different national and international exhibit rooms.
If I achieve the fixed goal and get 1800€ more, I shall publish a book with the whole collection, and a short text with part of the story told in each photograph and the names of patrons who have helped us make this project real.
With some more extra money, I shall be able to go back to the Idomeni border trying to finance humanitarian aid I shall deliver myself, making you participate by taking photographs of the moment. In case Ïdomeni has been evicted, I will go to any of the 15 camps located in Greece.
Format and printing.
All the photographs will have a 60x40 cm format. Five of them will be framed and have a 90x60 cm format in high quality photo paper.
