Scheherazade Tillet was a student of mine at Rutger University in 1998. In my documentary photography class she began a project using art therapy and photography to help her sister heal from sexual violence. Scheherazade has subsequently nurtured that project into an incredible non-profit organization. A Long Walk Home uses art therapy and the visual and performing arts to end violence against girls and women. On April 27, 2012, A Long Walk Home kicked off a fundraiser event at Gloria Steinem's House. I was honored that Scheherazade asked me to photograph the event. You can view more photos in our "recent work" gallery here.
