Donna Ferrato

Donna Ferrato is an american photographer who's been photographing since the 80's. She was working on a project photographing surburben couples and was confronted by domestic abuse. She worked on the series for about a decade and came out with her book "Living with enemy" which awared people of domestic abuse in common homes. Her photographs are painful and full of drama. This particular image, is my favorite from this artist. The intensity is truely so powerful, you can feel yourself be in the photograph/ situation. I like the movement of the photo, it goes left to right. the tones are great, and the boy mimics the man on the tv which is such a rare and perfect moment. The expression on the cops face adds to this drama in this photo.
