HE THREW THE LAST PUNCH TOO HARD

PHOTOGRAPHS BY HANNAH KOZAK

Essay by Hannah Kozak and Hope Edelman

Commentary: Aline Smithson

The book “He Threw The Last Punch Too Hard” by Los Angeles based photographer Hannah Kozak tells the story of her mother Rachel Zarco, a beautiful, passionate, vivacious, and fiery Guatemalan Sophia Loren-type brunette who left Hannah and the family after she fell in love with another man. The man turned out to be violent. He beat her so badly that she suffered permanent brain damage and had to be moved into an assisted living facility at the age of forty one, where she still lives today. Since 2009, Hannah has followed her difficult journey and this book is their story. A story that could inspire other women to leave an abusive relationship, before it’s too late.

HE THREW THE LAST PUNCH TOO HARD by Hannah Kozak was a finalist for the inaugural 2019 FotoEvidence W Award.
