GEMS x Survivor Leaders x Shotti = More Than A Survivor series

Last year I had the great privilege to shoot an amazing project that I care about deeply. I have been a supporter of the non-profit, GEMS, for a long time.

Below is some info about the project and images from the exhibit launch party.

The More Than A Survivor: More Than A Story Campaign and Poster Series features stunning portraits of 22 women from across the country who are all survivor leaders in a variety of venues from the arts to politics and more.

The More Than A Survivor photography exhibition honors their diversity, beauty, strength, accomplishments and leadership and celebrates their present and their future. The exhibition presents their images and words as a powerful antidote to the stereotypes of commercially sexually exploited and trafficked victims perpetually broken and forever limited by their trauma.

This traveling exhibition is also designed to be a poster series that will be utilized by youth serving agencies to inspire a tangible sense of hope and future for commercially sexually exploited and trafficked girls and women.
