I Speak Because I Can By Avery Steel

“An evocative representation of an autobiographical narrative about how my experience + memory of sexual assault manifests itself as a perpetual presence that is embedded on my own identity. This photographic series embodies a strange relay from trauma to memory, manufacturing both notions of distance + intimacy through an undigested thingness of a traumatic presence.”
