Skin Project | Silvia Alessi

Skin Project was photographed in Agra, Bhopal, Delhi, and Mumbai, where women are hit by acid attacks, a hideous kind of violence, common in the Indian subculture. For reasons such as a refusal or jealousy, these women are punished by their acquaintances, scarred forever, almost killed, and rejected by society. Their skin melts, and if not intervened in time, they even come to lose sight and hearing. Silvia Alessi joined women who have suffered this abusive attack, which today some of them are raising their voice against this crime, to raise awareness and empower survivors.
