Lorna Dancey – Lorna Dancey Photography
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 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.
Women Survivors Alliance
UNTOLD is a Ribbon of Support with the Women Survivors Alliance. The WSA is a 501(c)3 organization, created BY women survivors FOR women survivors and was created in 2013. The WSA’s mission is to transform survivorship from a mood into a movement by empowering, educating, and connecting women whose lives have been touched by cancer and to establish a network where women affected by cancer can find their voice, improve their quality of life, and embrace their new normal.
State of Mind Exhibit was created by Lorna Dancey. She discovered from interviewing many people regarding their internal scars, (mental health), she needed to create a project based on sharing stories of how mental health impacts all of us. She felt mental health is at the heart of everything we go through, yet has the least amount of compassion and the most judgment. The focus of the State of Mind is to help others realize there is healing and hope and to create conversations necessary to inspire change.
