"Money doesn't have any value,
some job is a creation,
here is illusions,
and we are the modern slaves of our own mankind."
Strangers in Frame is a series of the people that I encountered during my travels.
It is my personal view about how these people coping to survive and how they still enjoy the smallest details in their daily life with their loved ones.
The world is changing rapidly and it is getting tougher. People around the world end up working as hard as they can to survive, and it is all because of the monetary system, social inequality, and the world’s industrial system. Activist have been protesting against austerity and lobbying politicians, but still people cannot feed themselves and their families. Poor and working class people continue to suffer.
What I have captured might not be the most dangerous job on earth, but we are not conscious where there are billion others are doing the same things, struggling to survive the living cost and along the way comes the reality of life, where we forgot to pause our hard work and look what is happening around us. There are children growing up, adults getting older, people getting sick everyday, and suddenly we are no longer here in this world. What does life has to offer? How our monetary system enslaves us? How it can affect us in present and the future generation?
I asked myself that question everyday and I believe there is more that life can offer to these people but unfortunately we live in a system where money is a ‘tool’ to survive.
Here are some photographs of what I’m still working on.
