Annie's project Deafening Sound examines the deep roots of gendered violence and rape culture in American society. Presently, it combines three documentary projects, a portrait series and a collection of artifacts. It is structured so that each chapter examines different ways systematic gendered violence persists in America. It aims to reduce the stigma of gendered violence, address the complicated cycle of abuse and elevate consciousness about the prevalence of rape culture.

After a fatal shooting involving teenagers in her Brooklyn neighborhood, the photographer Cassandra Giraldo remembers how the media described them: "'Thugs,' 'hooligans,' 'gang members,'" she recalled. "It was insulting for me to read." Giraldo also knows better; the New York City-based photographer has been documenting urban youth culture since 2011 on Instagram as part of "The After School Project."
