Reactions of people (age 17-70) photography while listening to audio files on abuse coming from inside the final piece (meaning here) of my project. Since a lot of my main work in this project has been based on reactions and stories on a blogging platform, I decided the perfect way to end this project would be to use people reactions once more. The piece was placed in places where the subjects felt comfortable enough to let their own emotions out and was quiet enough for them to truly concentrate. Not everyone in this photoset has been effected directly by rape culture- until now when they have sat through 30 minutes of it, 30 minutes of hell in a spoken word format. As can been seen, emotions ran quite high throughout the listening process, with one subject even trying to hide his tears from the camera. The general idea of this was to not only create powerful photos, but to raise awareness of what many people look over and choose not to spend a minute of their day thinking of- let alone half an hour.
Really I think this project should be on international news I mean the message is obviously getting across to people and affecting them negatively, imagine what it would do on a larger scale. People need to get the message.
