Donna Ferrato, an expert on domestic abuse, has been a professional photographer for more than 20 years. Her most recent project, “Looking for Love,” concentrates on the bonds that hold people and families together. For 10 years she documented domestic abuse by spending time in battered women’s shelters, living with couples in their homes and riding with police for weeks at a time. Her photographs have been published extensively in publications such as Life, Fortune, The New York Times Magazine, Stern in Germany, and Das and DU magazines in Switzerland.
