Xenophobia is defined as the “hatred or fear of foreigners or strangers or of their politics or culture”. It comes from the Greek words ξένος (xenos), meaning “stranger,” “foreigner” and φόβος (phobos), meaning “fear.”

Xenophobia can manifest itself in many ways involving the relations and perceptions of an ingroup towards an outgroup, including a fear of losing identity, suspicion of its activities, aggression, and desire to eliminate its presence to secure a presumed purity. Xenophobia can also be exhibited in the form of an “uncritical exaltation of another culture” in which a culture is ascribed “an unreal, stereotyped and exotic quality”

    Beautiful work, but I don’t get the relation between the image and it’s title (even after reading the into ) I think I’m missing something.

  • “fear of foreigners or strangers” the image looks strange, and therefore feared, without knowing anything about the person. the coloured skin is an implication that she is from another culture we know nothing about, but will make ill formed judgements about before alowing time for understanding, does that help?
    glad you liked it anyway =)
