DACIANA LIPAI 2023 © Oxygen – Silent Scream SERIES ~ State of the World 2023 – Prix de la Photographie
Silent Screams SERIES is a high emotional load and great importance project, as it gives a voice to the lost souls in the tragic accidents in Romanian hospitals, and it wants to be a voice for each personal story or testimony, that is silenced by fear.
The recognition received is important because it talks about the State of the World, but more precisely, it perfectly shows the state of the soul of the Romanian people. It shows the merciless world in which we live, the human misery in which we like to stay, taking a sure path to complete dehumanization, which will lead to disintegration, and describes the hell that we have created for ourselves.
