about Places of the 1 in 4

 2014 - present 

The title of Places of the 1 in 4 refers to the statistic that one in four girls will be sexually assaulted before becoming eighteen but assault occurs without regard for gender, orientation, race or age. There were 660 reports of sexual assault made to the Austin Police Department in one year. As disparate as the victims, so are the locations where assault occurs. Each location becomes the subject of a formal portrait with camera, tripod and shutter release. 

 

Proceeds from this project will benefit SAFE Alliance (SafePlace and Austin Children's Shelter), RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Hotline) and other organizations providing prevention, education and victim services.
