SHAKTI: CULTURE - NO EXCUSE FOR ABUSE
Shakti is a national not-for-profit community organisation working in the area of domestic/family violence intervention, prevention and awareness. They provide specialist support services for women, children and families of Asia, African and Middle Eastern origin. In 2013 they partnered with the Ministry of Social Development's 'It's not OK' campaign to release a special booklet aimed at raising awareness about cross cultural family relationships. The booklet will be published in English and translated into Mandarin, Hindi and Farsi.
I was approached to partner with Shakti to provide the images to accompany the booklet. In the process, I photographed people of all ages and backgrounds in a range of locations, from bus stops to band practices.
