The concept of this project is to address the culture of violence towards women in rural, economically depressed areas.
I was really emotionally affected researching this problem. I had no idea how to really address or find a solution. The more I dug in the more hopeless and useless I felt. It was suggested that maybe I just try my original idea of posting something on the back of a woman’s bathroom stall. It was a “safe” place and to broaden the help focus to: Girls in Need of Assistance.
The back to the drawing board on this project involved a series of photos I took on my iPhone in a bathroom stall while traveling with my son to the beach. I loved the raw destruction of the walls.
