Live Through This, A Collection of Portraits by Dese'Rae L. Stage


Established in 2010, Live Through This is a collection of portraits by photographer Dese’Rae L. Stage featuring the true stories of suicide attempt survivors across the Untied States. This project reminds us that suicide is a human issue by elevating and amplifying attempt survivors’ voices through raw, honest stories of survival, and pairing them with portraits of those survivors in the moments just after telling their stories—putting faces and names to the statistics that were the only representation of attempt survivors for far too long. Select portraits along with links to the survivors’ stories will be available to view digitally at September 18–November 1, 2020. This exhibition is hosted in partnership with the County of San Luis Obispo Behavioral Health Department and Cuesta College.
