In pictures – The lovely and courageous co-founders of GA-FGM, Holger Postulart (Germany) and Elisabeth Wilson (EU) b. Haiti rescued by UN PKs from DR [sic] Congo as a child and ultimately naturalized in Canada and now EU beat all odds and grew together a world-class recognized NGO, #GAFGM. See in the slideshow, their first wonderful official intern, Guillaume Roth, now a graduate of Political Studies (France) with a thesis on FGM featured a summary of his internship with GA-FGM (Fr.). “The one who broke the ice!”.

Bless Guillaume’s good soul, he perceived the image in this way: his early placement of the frame (with the UN blue teddy).

As anyone can observe, the image can appear in any direction. Art as message medium.
