My work in explores ways to humanize the statistics surrounding sexual assault. I wanted to find a way to create a profound understanding of the consequences and realities tied to sexual abuse by displaying work that resonates with viewers in a personal way. To achieve this, I photographed survivors who then superimposed hand-written messages atop their portraits. These messages include their stories, the battles they’ve faced, their resilience, and more. By encouraging viewers to spend time reading and making connections with each survivor’s story, I hope to induce empathy and raise awareness.
