Snap! Orlando presents : ‘Weapon of Choice’ by Richard Johnson

Thursday, May 7th 2015 | 7pm – 10pm | Orange Studio

Snap! Presents ‘WEAPON OF CHOICE’ by photographer Richard Johnson, curated by Patrick and Holly Kahn. ONE NIGHT ONLY! No cover: RSVP : http://www.eventbrite.com/e/snap-orlando-presents-weapon-of-choice-by-richard-johnson-tickets-16598674081

Weapon of Choice - HurtWords.com was conceived to provide a graphic demonstration of the invisible pain caused by verbal abuse through photography. It is meant to provoke a conversation about the problems of domestic violence, child abuse, and bullying. Richard Johnson takes the power of a photo to a new level by illustrating the invisible and eternal scars victims of emotional, sexual and verbal abuse endure.

“We presented each participant in the Weapon of Choice Project with a list of hurtful words, and we asked them to choose a word that had significance to them (some volunteered words we didn’t think of). At first, they were just words on list. But as each participant chose a word — the word that would be painted on their body and captured in a photograph — the words took on much more significance.” – Richard Johnson.

This exhibit is also in support of the Zebra Coalition.

Photographer Richard Johnson and guest speakers in attendance.

Special thanks to Julio Lima of The Orange Studio for believing in this project, and allowing us to exhibit in your space.
