The disease is not skin color. Mistreating individuals according to their skin color is a symptom of evil. Madness is an imbalance. So, it is necessary to restore Balance to cure ourselves. To eradicate an epidemic, one treats each individual until all are healed.

Black Dolls Project is a body of work composed of three photographic series.

Poupées Noires is the reality of persons classified as non- white. They are Dolls. Flora is the imaginary that is inculcated and inoculated; shaping the reality that surrounds them. Mental-Cide is the terminal phase, letting them disarticulated, both psychically and physically. The individual develops reactions that lead him to mistreat himself and to mistreat the other. Are we ready to accept our condition? Are we ready to begin the healing process? Do we aim at producing justice?
