Last week we mentioned some major issues go uncovered because many photographers are too afraid to cover life threatening issues, although domestic violence is not a major life threatening matter (towards a photographer), Do we have less photographers covering major issues because it is life threatening or because they can't find major media outlets that will publish their photographs?
I AM UNBEATABLE PROJECT
- The mission at I AM UNBEATABLE is to raise awareness, educate and prevent domestic violence against women and children, featuring personal stories, interviews and photographs.
- I AM UNBEATABLE aims to educate through photography to understand the dangers associated with domestic violence.
- To recognize the warning signs.
- To know that love has nothing to do with violence.
- By photographs and video narratives I Am Unbeatable will become a joined archive put together in a repository to create a history of the movement since 1982.
Domestic Abuse Awareness, Inc. (DAA)
- Ferrato formed a nonprofit organization, Domestic Abuse Awareness, Inc. (DAA) and used her images to raise money for women's shelters.
- Hosted more than 400 exhibitions worldwide and raised millions of dollars
- still exists, but Ferrato is not as actively involved as she used to be
Is an activist photographer still considered a photojournalist, why or why not? In Ferrato's case, is she still considered a photojournalist?
For ten years after the attack on the World Trade Center, Donna Ferrato has photographed the healing and the rebirth of Tribeca, New York City’s most historic neighborhood.
