Elisabeth Lindberg is the bravest advocate for women to leave abusive relationships before anyone ends up dead. She overcame the abuse. She recuperated her dignity. She broke the cycle of violence within her family. Elisabeth did this when society's eyes were closed against a battered woman's reality. I'm thankful that by being there at that moment, as a photographer I could be of service, metaphorically speaking, to Elisabeth and all battered women I've met throughout the years. They have all been my guides through these 34 years of searching for ways to educate people through photographs about the horrible injustice of domestic violence.
