As a social impact photographer, Lorna Dancey empowers people though her unique photography coupled with her genuine style of writing, that inspires hope and change in the world.
Lorna has the ability to capture the essence of truth in a world of unspoken and silent topics that relate to mental health, domestic abuse, cancer, homelessness and PTSD.
This led Dancey to create the Scars project, State of Mind project, the Skin-deep project and the Silent scream project.
Lorna has interviewed and photographed over a 200 individuals to draw attention and to help remove the stigma surrounding these very important topics.
These topics consist of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, suicide, cancer and much more in hopes of helping others who struggle to not feel so alone and realize they matter; and in doing so, Lorna is able to give a face to those who suffer in silence and for us all to realize we are not alone.
There is help and there is hope and we all need to advocate for those who cannot.
To be good humans and show compassion and kindness to those who are struggling every day, to create a movement of more compassion and less judgment.
"If we all could walk around with our stories written on our chests for everyone to read, we would be much more compassionate, kinder and less judgemental towards others".
