Laura Ramsey is a British photographer from North London. Since studying at University, she has developed an interest in making political and social statements with her work. Her current piece of work, 'Amen.' Addresses the issue of sexual assault in relation to Catholicism, from biblical stories to 21st Century cases. Using self-portraits as a medium to express her views and beliefs, this project enabled her to confront a taboo topic. It also allowed her to question assumed boundaries and visually explore a current issue, which tends to be silenced and hidden by the church. Cases worldwide reflect patterns of long-term institutional abuse and cover-ups. This project gives you an insight into what happens behind closed doors. The cover-ups are being uncovered.
