Artist Statement: What an absolute pleasure to exhibit alongside Don Rogers and Jenny Moore Smith. I am excited to be one of the three amazingly different views, “Through the Lens”. I hope you enjoy the show.
Although I enjoy photographing everyday people and things, I also have felt the need over the years to shine a light on certain subjects through photographic storytelling. For this particular exhibition, I have chosen a few pieces to collaborate with my sister, Jennifer Roberts. The subject matter, domestic violence, isn’t a pretty one. In fact, it is terrifying for those in the midst of it and those of us whose loved ones are fighting, sometimes silently, to survive. It is my hope that those pieces make some people think and others realize they are not alone.
Thank you for supporting the arts.
