Thanks to a friend who tipped me off to this project, using photography as a way to help survivors of sexual abuse/assault. She photographs survivors with quotes from their perpetrators. Recently, people have been taking pictures of themselves and their quotes and sending them to Grace from all over the country. Read more about it below:
In October of last year, Grace Brown began a photography project called Project Unbreakable. Grace uses photography to help heal sexual abuse survivors by photographing them with posters that hold quotes from their attackers. Rape survivor and advocate for victims of sexual abuse, Yvonne Moss, describes the project as a way for victims to take the power back of the words that were once used against them.
Grace plans on photographing survivors for as long as she possibly can. Her goal is to spread light, awareness, and healing for those who have been affected.
If you are interested in participating by either being photographed or sending in your own image, you may send her an email at email@example.com with the subject line "Photograph Me" or "Submission", depending on the circumstance.
If you have an image you would like to submit, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org And if you’re in NYC, MA, NJ, or Washington DC then I would potentially be able to photograph you in the near future - just send me an email.
