Growing up with a lisp and a stutter
Each time I uttered
I mean each time I choked
On a word
I got bullied by peers and teachers
I lost my voice in theirs
After years of staying silent
I saw what was happening around the world
Taking their lives
When the bullying got too bad
And no one showed up
No one showed up
“Step into it. It’s never too late”
Anna Zhang, New York
POWER IS action over silence
There’s something special about capturing human faces, in illuminating facets of an identity through static images. In translating what happens behind the scenes—the shared accounts of vulnerability, humor, and dejection—into a final portrait, I cherish the opportunity for storytelling through each photograph, depictions of identities not quite polished, but stunningly real.
