This may be triggering.

Photojournalist documents the build up to and the aftermath of an incident of domestic violence.

Incredibly powerful images. I stumbled upon them after a friend posted this on FB - a piece comparing war and domestic violence.

Domestic violence is so outrageous!! Hope this kind of things would be eliminated.

I think you needed to mention that the images contained children witnessing violence. I never expected that and now I feel sick.

The photographer's comments underneath are interesting: she clearly feels guilty that she didn't actually stop the man from assaulting the woman, and she explains that she has the woman's permission to publish the pictures.

Sorry, NeoMaxi, I thought the description would be enough.
