AFTER/SHOCK

"This story is about my personal journey with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.

On June 5, 2014 I was manipulated, threatened, held against my will and sexually assaulted by a renowned Nepali photojournalist in Kathmandu, Nepal. 

He was doing everything that he could to rape me that night, and I will never forget when he said: 'If you don’t have sex with me, I will destroy your career.'

This event sent me spiraling downwards; everything associated with photojournalism triggered me for months on end, and it nearly caused me to give up photography altogether.

The following pictures document my experience over the past two years, coping with my trauma and now attempting to move beyond it."

—Photojournalist, Anica James
