After 9 months of travelling around China Alvaro Escobar came across so many prohibtions that he decided to create the series ‘Censored’ as a metaphor that shows the China that he experienced.

He was confronted with absurd rules, taboo subjects and even interrogations, with a country whose goverment controls every step and covers the reality (the internet, the news, …) which doesn’t allow people to have a transparent view of the truth that surrounds them.
