I am a visual artist, who has been working as a photographer for the past 20 years. A few years ago, I turned my lens to a topic about which I feel passionately: gender violence, and I need your help to bring this project to the next level.
This project started with 3 friends sharing their accounts of sexual violence. When I heard these stories, I was inspired to use photography to illustrate their experiences, and then give them a palette to voice their own experiences in whatever way they choose. As discussions unfolded, the project began to grow and evolve, with the goal of encompassing as many voices and perspectives as possible.
As it stands now, this project features more than 40 stories and photographs. When seen together, the viewer gets both the most intimate view, as well as a much broader perspective. The testimonies of the women in the show give narratives that will shock, educate, inspire, and challenge perceptions.
This is a dynamic work that continues to grow and change as people hear about what I am doing. It has always been my goal to continue to expand this narrative to include more women from more nations and walks of life. By contributing to this fund, you can be part of this process and help raise awareness about the different layers of gender violence that exist in all cultures and demographics. I hope you consider a donation in any amount to help me add volume to these stories.
