Donna Ferrato is an American photojournalist known for her groundbreaking documentation of the hidden world of domestic violence. Her seminal book Living With the Enemy (Aperture, 1991) went into four printings and, alongside exhibitions and lectures across the globe, sparked a national discussion on sexual violence and women’s rights. In 2014, Ferrato launched the I Am Unbeatable campaign to expose, document, and prevent domestic violence against women and children through real stories of real people. On the occasion of her latest book, Holy, published this winter by powerHouse Books (see our story here), Blind releases an exclusive video where Donna Ferrato discusses the power of documentary photography, her fights for women, her personal work, and shows some steps of the making of the publication in her New York studio.
