« I am not your animal » is an on-going series depicting the daily life of migrant domestic workers from Sierra Leone in Beirut, Lebanon. The title of the series stems from the extensive discussions Aline had with this group of women, most of which had escaped from abusive households and were victims of human trafficking.
In between the darkness of their small appartement and the burning sun of Lebanon, Aline captures the pains and joys, the fear and solidarity, but above all the strength and resilience from this new sisterhood. By highlighting their power and creativity, Aline aims at representing them with dignity. « I am not your animal » is a visual testimony enabling the shift on how these women should be perceived, thus revealing our common humanity.
