“I want to show the importance of understanding how silence hides violence. Some women will never talk to anyone about being abused. Break the silence, stop the violence – women’s lives matter. Society needs to talk more about this topic. There are a lot of cases women hide just because they are afraid of what society may say about them.”
ARTIST BIO: Yojany Hernandez is a Grade 12 student at Princeton High School.
PROJECT: Photography students were challenged by art teacher Lindsey Holliday to create imagery based on their own personal passion or connection to themes of Peace and Social Justice in regards to Equality and Equity. Students viewed and discussed the Equality/ Equity Illustration, Bisa Butler’s The Safety Patrol quilt, Shepard Fairey’s American Rage poster, and Frank Willis Thomas’ Branded photograph. They also viewed the series published by Amplifier Art, 12 Conversations Seek Common Ground. Students were encouraged to develop their ideas in a plan and create their artwork using media and techniques of their choice.
