Equals under the x-ray machine

I have been thinking and trying to write about Human rights. In the Human Rights Declaration the first article says, “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”, further more the second article adds “Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it is independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.” Yet, the reality is slightly different and that’s how I see it; yes everybody is created equally, but at the very first breath a human takes, he/she undergoes violations of basic human rights, of course the level of violations depend on race, color, sex and religion.

In conclusion, I believe that all humans are equally created by default, and the only place humans are equals at is under the x-ray machine.

This photo made its way as a cover page on the online magazine Dekit, of New York. You can read more on my views of Human Rights, and also see some of my other photos in the magazine.
