Confronting Modern Slavery in AmericaTaro Yamasaki: Black Heart, Red Heart

Taro Yamasaki:
Black Heart, Red Heart

Taro Yamasaki’s Black Heart, Red Heart project challenges the myths and misperceptions that blind us to human trafficking in America. The title is from a young trafficking survivor’s crayon drawing of her passage from horror to healing: from the black heart of abuse to the red heart of rescue and safe shelter. Yamasaki focuses his lens on the human face of this hideous crime rather than on stereotypical images of mean streets and back alleys. His photographs teach that, with proper care, the scars of modern slavery can be healed.
