Sometimes child abuse is visible only to the child suffering it

Answer by Jessica Hui:

This is one of the cleverest print advertisements I’ve ever encountered. The ANAR Foundation, which manages a dedicated hotline for children at risk, put out an ad about child abuse.

Viewed normally, the ad shows a child and reads, roughly: “Sometimes child abuse is visible only to the child suffering it.”

However, they also calculated the average height of a ten-year-old and, using lenticular printing, added a layer of imagery and text that’s only visible from a child’s-eye-view.

To children, the poster shows the child wounded, the ANAR hotline and reads: “If someone’s hurting you, phone us and we’ll help you”.
