Artist's Description

It has nothing to do with the color of your skin, your nationality or religion…

Many times we hear or say, “love thy neighbourgh as yourself”, or “do to others as you expect them to do to you”, or “to be on someone else’s shoes”….
Yesterday I started a series about poverty and children… I used pictures I found on the web to create my photoshop collages… today, I decided to go further… I found a very moving pic of a starving mother and her child and started telling myself the sentences I wrote above… I felt so lucky I was not in that situation, but I felt so moved…. I felt deep compassion….And I decided to replace that mother’s face with my own, and that son’s face with my son’s…. That is the closest image I can have on another person’s shoes…. I have to say it was strong!!
First, I had to tell my 7 years old son I was going to do this….he was shocked, at first, as you can imagine, and then asked me why…. I explained to him… I explained also that I was going to be with him too, holding the starving boy….and that I wanted to give a message… He agreed totally….and we spent several minutes talking about poverty and hunger…. Yesterday, he could see with his own eyes people sleeping in the streets downtown….
I hope this could send a message….
If you were in this mother’s shoes, what would you expect?
