India

photobucket
This poster, which is the third in the series, is a response to the brides of India that have been set on fire due to their husband's greed. I wanted to show her distracted happiness and his inert cruelty by engaging the viewer and displaying the lighter in his pocket. The line under the header reads,"annually, over 20,000 women are set on fire when their husbands are dissatisfied with their dowries."
