"BEAUTIFICATION OF ALIENS" is a series that translate themes of humanity, xenophobia and social segregation. One of our inclinations is to accept others as long as they are like one of us. Our bias defines these superficialities.

We defend and justify this prejudice contrary to love, acceptance and respect for one another.
