“In the spring of 2015, I was assaulted by a stranger on my walk home from the gym. I was left unconscious on the street with a severe concussion, broken jaw and sinus, and shattered tooth. The assailant was never brought to justice. This series is not only an attempt for me to process the event, but also an examination of the profound physical and emotional impact of violence in America, particularly against women. It leads us to a confrontational conversation: what is happening here in America? What role are we all playing in the systemic nature of violence? And what are we actively doing to stop it?” —Emily Smith
