Being Rosa Rosa has survived an abusive and violent relationship and the extensive stalking period after the break-up.The Rosa series is about visual storytelling. It aims to find a visual language for the different stages of Rosa's painful story. Stunned terror, paralyzed silence, dissolution of self, cut and aftermath. The images were taken when Rosa came to Violens.org to share her story. Violens.org is a literary-photographic project on violence that turns experiences with violence into art. Violens is run by author Dirk Könnecke and photographer Martin U Waltz.
