A Personal Journey- Photography expression by Jennifer George

Exposing Scars

Domestic Violence- Trapped in a bubble of indecision, fear and love.

Domestic Violence- Trapped in a bubble of indecision, fear and love.

Last April I found myself inside Orange Coast College Gallery admiring a photography exposition “A Personal Journey-Exposing scars” by Jennifer George a student in Orange Coast College. Admiring is not the right word to say it, because it is hard to watch the horror that every photography denounces. Every photography carries a story of domestic violence whether is physical, verbal or emotional; the scars are deep and painful.

Being there I meet a lady in her 70s that related to the exposition as she was a victim of domestic violence as well. You can not help but to fell sad and even with teary eyes to read every story next to a photo. Some of the women on the exposition were killed by their husbands and boyfriends others have escaped the ordeal.

“In the exhibit student photographer Jennifer George strongly exposes the world to domestic violence, giving abused women a voice with her unique style of photography and bold statements through her own experiences.“said Brando Lien, staff writer for CoastReport.com
