Redfitz Films presents Conflict, an original series composed of 6 individual episodes. With « Conflict », photographers bringing light to the shadows. The world’s best conflict photographers take us behind the lens and into their lives. Witness their personal and professional battles to engage with, understand, handle, capture and present different forms of conflict in the hopes of making the world better.
Nothing brings you closer to the most important human conflicts of our time.
The project by Donna Ferrato is the third episode. Many conflict photographers talk about getting “close” to their subjects; but perhaps none get closer than Donna Ferrato. For more than 30 years, Donna has been making deep and lasting relationships with women, and then asking to take their pictures on the worst day of their lives. Taking an ethnographic approach to the circumstances and victims of domestic violence might not be what most people think about when they think of conflict photographers; but the work is easily as disturbing and affecting as anything else out there. By asking these women to step in front of the camera, Donna asks them to look at themselves and assess their lives.
