Description

December 2, 2017 | Anaheim, CA – In honor of mental illness awareness, mental health day, day of the girl, domestic violence awareness month, and the #metoo movement, I launched a new photo series called Once Upon A Time. Stepping into a very personal place, the motivation comes after encountering many years of psychological abuse in intimate relationships, I sought to shed light on the dark world of psychological abuse and the effect it has on one’s mental health.

With the message, “Together we are stronger.” I will showcase the photos in the series on December 2nd in Anaheim, CA. Having showcased in large venues around Los Angeles and coordinated events in public spaces, I sought something different for this project. To provide a level of intimacy for attendees, who will have a space to share their stories, I am opening up my home and converting the garage into the gallery space. It will be an evening of vulnerability and authenticity as attendees unite together to root for each other and support each other’s growth on life’s journey.

We all deserve to have a voice. We all deserve to be free. However, as a woman it can be easy to lose yourself in a relationship. We live in a culture that fills our heads with fairytales. Sometimes we lose our self, self-love, self-respect, power, and rights, all while pursuing our happily ever after. Can we stop disarming and destroying ourselves for our happily ever after?

Once Upon A Time gives a platform for the unheard voices by sharing stories of victims and survivors. It brings to LIGHT what is often kept in the dark. Silence hides the unseen violence of psychological abuse. Invisible wounds are still wounds. It’s important to help educate the community on this taboo topic. Education raises awareness and allows for change to happen. Awareness brings change.

Come stand with survivors and victims of psychological abuse as the space is filled with truth, healing, and peace. Listen, speak up, and spark a conversation on psychological abuse and mental health that can reduce the stigma attached to both. #OnceUponATime #JEbarbies #JessicaEileenPhotos

We all have a voice.

You don’t have to suffer silently.

Break the silence.
You can recover.
Your story isn’t over yet.
