For two years Elena McGannon has been working in collaboration with Red My Lips, an international non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting those suffering the impacts of sexual violence or assault. Her portrait series of the same name aims to dismantle the myths and social constructs that perpetrate these issues. Clad in red lipstick, her subjects share their stories and thoughts on sexual violence, its impact, and the importance of compassion and solidarity.

Tall, Dark & Coffee Café and Creative Space will be hosting the exhibition until December 14th.
Donations to the RML organisation will be made available.

“We can’t eliminate sexual violence overnight but the way we think and speak has power. My hope is that people around the globe will find power and hope in others and keep these conversations going.”
- Danielle Tansino, founder of the Red My Lips organisation.

Elena is currently studying her BA of Photography at RMIT University, but has been taking portraits of her ungrateful siblings since high school. This is her first solo exhibition.
