LMAC196: Globalism

Hello everyone! πŸ˜ŽπŸ“·

Sunday is my day for photo manipulation and here's an entry to the Let's Make a Collage - A Contest for All Creatives on Hive - Round 196 - 35 HIVE in the Prize Pool!

The first thought that came to my mind when I saw the house in the basic photo was that someone must be looking through the windows. Good. But what should they be looking at? Well, that's a slightly more difficult question. I linked this to the UNHCR - the UN Refugee Agency - report, which says the number of displaced people worldwide this year is the highest ever. Around 110 million people! What a huge number! And most of them because of armed conflict and violence. Is this the globalization we want? Expectations that tensions would stabilize were completely wrong.

So the inhabitants of the house (or should I even say indigenous people) watch from a distance, through the windows, the crowds of unhappy people who, tired, frustrated, slowly getting fed up with everything, are trying to get to their better tomorrow which was supposed to be a symbol of freedom and prosperity, but where what they have imagined is not waiting for them anymore.

The creation process

I made the collage in Photoshop. First, I changed the background from the base image, leaving the house and adding the symbolic element. The other objects I first edited and then layered into the base image.

Hope you have fun!

I just hope the rising levels of armed conflicts and violence across the world will decrease significantly and we will have lesser cases of such displacements. I think your collage is creative and would have a good chance in the contest. Have a great day.

I think this one is brilliant. Of course, the reaction of viewers will depend on their attitude toward refugees and world conflict.

Sometimes I get an impression in my head of the privileged countries being on a great ship and all the poor and displaced in the world trying to get on. Surely the situation is unendurable. Not only is it morally unsustainable, but physically, how long can the privileged keep everyone else at bay?

A great collage.

veryhappyday :

Kudos to you for your meaningful collage. I like the faces in the window, the detailing. We wish you the best of luck in the contest.

When I thought about the topic of globalization, I was reminded of the song "We are the world".

I can see Michael Jackson in there too, I miss him.

This is a stunning collage I must confess. They are looking great

w74 :

It is said that some people lock all the windows as soon as they have a closer look outside and put an even better locker in the door. At least, that's what I've heard …

rafzat :

This collage is fantastic It clearly shows how the world leaders treat the masses You’re very right on this I love it!

redheadpei :

Amazing creation. With Lady Liberty in the background, your collage reminds me of all the immigrants coming into the U.S.A. to start a new life.

Thanks for including my lil image in the line of people. 😊

eve66 :

There go the Venezuelans, looking for a better future.

I confess that if my age were 20 years younger, there I would be in the crowd looking for the dream that was taken away from us.

Looking for a new beginning where I can eat well, go to the beach and live an old age in dignity.


eve66 :

An excellent collage with a message of reflection.
