The enemy in the earth

Vides Minades – Under Mined Lives is an exhibition based on a book of the compiled photographs of photojournalist Gervasio Sánchez. Sanchez revisits four disabled children that he first photographed in 1997, then again in 2002. Sofia Elface from Mozambique, Sokheurm Man from Cambodia, Manuel Orellana from El Salvador and Adis Smajic from Bosnia were all maimed as children when they stood on antipersonnel land mines.
