Save One or Save Many?

Donna Ferrato talks about the images of domestic violence made by Ohio student Sara Lewkowicz, and you have to read into the comments.

In the comments, someone using the handle union fan takes Lewkowicz to task for shooting and not helping, something that may seem like an obvious choice. It’s a hard choice, but I’d side with the photographer on this – she got a phone, insured that the 911 call was placed, then did the only thing she could to help all victims, and even this one single woman – she documented the incident, leaving no questions as to what had happened and what its impact was.

Ferrato is the woman behind the seminal book on domestic violence, Living With the Enemy.
