Available All Month

Seen + Heard

Available all month

“Until #MeToo, people who were molested, raped assaulted, or harassed were rarely seen and less frequently heard.  News cycles change, and I wanted to keep the conversation visible and loud.  I emailed everyone I knew asking them to email everyone they knew seeking anyone willing to be photographed willing to be documented telling their experience with sexual assault, abuse, or rape.”

 

Visit Honey Lazar’s virtual photo exhibition to bear witness to these survivor’s stories – for their stories cannot be heard until we stop and listen.
