I recently submitted my picture 'Rio and Leli' (below) to a an exhibition and awareness project called No Exclusions, here in Malta and I was delighted to learn that the image won in the in the 'Overall Winner' category. The winner was chosen by a panel of judges.
This is what the project is about in the words of it's organisers:
at face value it shows a connection between the very young and the elderly but also, Rio is the son of an English man (me) and the relationships are a result of racial inclusion; the grandparents are Maltese and adopted a mixed-race Brazilian girl who married a caucasian man.
I guess, if that isn't inclusion, what is!
The exhibition was held in Malta's capital city, Valletta between 10th and 11th June, 2011.
