"Awhereness" project featured today on Feature Shoot

Added on by Annie Ling.

Thank you Feature Shoot and Sukruti Anah Staneley for writing this feature! Excerpt from FS:

"For her work Awhereness, Annie Ling, a Taipei-born photographer from New York, spent two months traveling through parts of Romania and Moldova to meet with the survivors of sex trafficking and listen to their stories. Using a medium format camera, Ling tries to eschew sensational images and instead approaches her subjects with a sense of quiet, acting as a listener. Through her project, she focuses on where trafficking happens and how people overcome this chapter in their life. Ling’s work traces the effect of such spaces on these women and how it shapes them."

Awhereness is currently on view as part of Take Ten, a group exhibition at ICP, from January 17 – March 15, 2015.


Awhereness at CRS for Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Added on by Annie Ling.

This Saturday, January 11th is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

The Center for Remembering & Sharing (a community center located in the East Village in NYC that presents healing, arts and cultural programs) in partnership with Think Act Change NYC will be hosting a free evening of film screenings and a panel discussion on what trafficking looks like today domestically and abroad. In conjunction with the event, a selection of images and stories from my project AWHERENESS on human trafficking in Romania and Moldova will be installed in the lobby for the month.

Please take this opportunity and direct your attention to SocialDocumentary.net which highlights work by photographers around the world shedding light on the tragedy of trafficking.
