This studio portrait is depicting the silent nature of child abuse. The main focus is on the child by having the adults hand/arm slightly out of focus to strengthen that children suffering are unable to speak out about their abuser(s). It is a problem that still requires to be highlighted as children need a voice and they require the world to open their eyes to see the little details that can stop the abuse continuing.

I am in my 3rd and final year of BA Professional Photography where I am focusing my attention on the Documentary genre. I want to focus my attention on social awareness issues by telling an intriguing story that will not only aesthetically please the viewer but re-educate them on the subject matter. The imagery I create consists of candid moments, environmental portraits and interesting perspectives on the day to day lives people lead.
