Los Intocables is Spanish for ‘The Untouchables’. It is a photographic series by Erik Ravelo which addresses controversial issues such as child obesity, nuclear catastrophes, wars, and the 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.” He (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.
