Artist Statement

 

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE & SEXUAL ASSAULT

These Hands is a photographic project that gives a confidential voice to the survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault by capturing the emotive power of their hands and their story.  Domestic violence and sexual assault survivors often suffer at the hands of others.  It is often the hands that inflict the most hurt, violence and trauma in intimate partner violence.  However, as we are showing through these impactful photographs, hands can convey strength, hope and recovery.  Sharing a heart wrenching story paired with the empowered hands helps us to send the message that hands are for so much more that is positive.  Hands are for healing, helping, loving, holding and most of all caring and empowering to make our world a better place.

As we capture the essence of hands through photography, we would like to share the many stories of survival, resiliency and most importantly Hope and Healing.
