graphic journalism

graphic journalism

Couple of spreads from Only Human book addressing domestic violence.  One of six ‘stories’.

Blend of graphic journalism and text accounts; all taken from first person transcripts.  The illustrated sections are not only less daunting for those who struggle with a lot of words, but ideally will draw in readers who wouldn’t necessarily pick up a book on this critical issue.  Using colour, shades of grey, and symbolism, the graphic pages can express internal thoughts, as well as the horror and hope that accompanies domestic violence – feelings common to victims and their families, regardless of all social, cultural or economic differences.
