A Soul-Stirring Journey of Acid Attack Survivors!
The Photo Series ‘Sacred Transformation” aim to communicate the plight of Acid Attack Survivors and the journey of their lives, in terms of coping up & regaining the lost hope. It is dedicated to saluting the heroic efforts and the determination with which they strive at transforming their lives for better against all odds. The series is a glance through some of the major emotional stages of their lives. From being devastated to becoming self-assured and from the wreckage to happiness.
The photo-series represents their ‘emotional’ journey. It is the dreaded pain of Acid Attack (done as revenge or intimidation, usually one-sided love) which engulfs them and fills them with hatred & unacceptability of themselves and everyone around them. It takes valor to fight the isolation which impacts them to the extent that they might garner the practice of veiling themselves to avoid the world and the inconveniences which they might end up facing. The love & care they receive from their surrounding also plays a great role in instilling confidence and reassurance in them. It’s not an easy journey and might even take years, but what holds value is their willingness to strive and to reignite the life force and the enthusiasm to live.
The photo documentary series is a compilation of pictures of various survivors emoting different emotions experienced at different phases of their lives after the attack. It’s a step towards spreading awareness about such unpardonable acts of the attackers and about the harsh truth of non-acceptance of the victims in society.
