MOSTAFA HERAVI, according to Roqu Media, “takes difficult or political subject matter and uses images to juxtapose ideas and make commentary.” On International Women's Day in 2020 the artist (an Iranian filmmaker, photographer, and visual artist) posted this image accompanied by statistics provided by The UN Refugee Agency. Specifically, Heravi reported that as of the end of 2018: a total count of 70.8 million individuals were forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, violence, or human rights violations; the refugee population has nearly doubled since 2012; and children below 18 years of age constituted about half of the refugee population.
