Shedding light on the ongoing endemic of violence against women in Papua New Guinea, Russian photojournalist Vlad Sokhin uses his lens for human right captures, which in this case is his violence against women photography series.

The powerful and endearing violence against women photography project 'Crying Meri' uses video and images to expose the brutal epidemic that has become part of everyday life for women there.

'Crying Meri' is a creative response by Sokhin to hopefully change these women's future. The poignant documentation of these women has already caused a public stir proving that the power of art can help change the world, and hopefully make things a little better for these women and the generations of women after them.
