My most recent project, Every Woman I Know, is a series of portraits depicting every woman I personally know who has been a victim of sexual violence. Everyone who participates is photographed anonymously, and those who elect to have a public portrait done are photographed both ways. This further emphasizes that despite the safety of many voices and the movement of #MeToo, many women still do not feel comfortable coming forward publicly, and this is visibly represented by how many women only participate anonymously. In these exceedingly hostile times, the voices of women need to be echoed more than ever, and our stories need to be heard. By standing together, we can change the perception that this is not a serious or frequent issue and bring attention to how necessary a shift is in our society's values regarding women and our place in it.
Who Are They?
