#TeamOfUs is a documentary style photo project which aims to highlight not only rape culture in Ireland, but also the affects rape culture has on a broader scale; it does not just affect the victim. This project focuses on the age group of 18-24’s, as this vital ‘finding yourself’ era in a person's life can often present unwarranted risks or danger.

High profile cases, such as the Paddy Jackson Belfast rape trial, has arguably both encouraged and discouraged victims of rape and sexual assault to come forward. This series of portraits, of both men and women, gives an example of the range of young people this culture affects.
