Lowe Uruguay has created this striking print campaign for Amnesty International. Titled ‘Desaparecidos’ (‘Missing’), it aims to remember the people who were persecuted, tortured and disappeared under the military dictatorships in Uruguay, Argentina and Chile.
The campaign commemorates 40 years of democracy in the region, yet expresses Amnesty’s ongoing fight for justice for those missing. By pairing before and after images of families who have lost someone, the campaign simply but powerfully highlights their ongoing loss.
Here is a close-up of the images from one of the posters:

Our March issue is an illustration special with features on Clifford Richards, Pick Me Up, the relationship between illustrators and writers, the making of the cover of the New York Times Magazine and a powerful essay by Lawrence Zeegen calling on illustrators to become more engaged with the wider world and accusing the profession of withdrawing “from the big debates of our society to focus on the chit-chat and tittle-tattle of inner-sanctum nothingness”.
