A Home Without Innocence 2022


A Home Without Innocence looks at Franklin‘s childhood experiences of sexual abuse as a means to generate community awareness and conversation about ending the cycle of abuse. Additionally, the exhibition looks to provide support and a platform to victims and other survivors. Franklin pulls from primary imagery, Google street view and memory to construct a narrative of the environments of his upbringing. Utilizing imagery of the houses he lived in and where the abuse took place, the work examines the psychological space of that time period.
