Rehoboth photographer sheds light on abuse
12 November 2019 | Local News
“With all the abuse and violence going on in our community, I wanted to raise awareness on the topic of domestic violence,” says Harriet Naftali, adding that this issue breaks her heart. “I did this for all the women and children going through abuse. I want them to see themselves in each image, open up and break the silence.”
Harriet contacted make-up artist Claudine Snyders to do the make-up and a few close friends of hers, together with their children to be the models.
Since the shoot, that took place in September, she has received positive feedback from the community, “especially men.” This has inspired her to already start planning her next shoot. “But more on that later,” she says.
Harriet’s photography started back in 2013 and she loves the stories it can tell. “Photographs can be kept for eternity and this is what I love to do,” she says, adding proudly that she is a self-taught photographer.
