The White Knuckled Project
”With this project, I want to spotlight the lengths women and those who experience harassment and assault go through to ensure their personal safety. It is something nearly all of us do on a regular basis. In some of the conversations around this project and with friends, its almost become a joke. But, inside of the laughter is a nervousness that we all connect to. This is our reality on these panels.” -Cory Favre
