Stephanie Sinclair

Stephanie Sinclair, Self-Immolation in Afghanistan: A Cry for Help, 2005. 
Digital print, dimensions variable.

This artist's concept reminds me of my own because she is dealing with women's personal history of abuse. The women in these images demonstrate a rare bravery. The representation of their suffering exposes the everyday violence against women that is made more pernicious when it remains hidden.
