A survivor of child abuse, Ms Clementi uses photography as a vehicle to express her painful feelings, stemming from said abuse.
The black and white photographs below are all 8×10 in size, shot in 1994.

Ms. Mundy’s photographic and journalistic work below represent a large part of her own healing process. In recording these events for the exhibit, she validated her own sexual abuse history as well.
The following introduction, photographs and interviews, have been excerpted from Ms. Mundy’s web site.
“This exhibition WOUNDED BOYS – COURAGEOUS MEN is dedicated to the survivors of institutionalized child abuse.
The students were from different cultural economic backgrounds. They were sent to the schools for a variety of reasons: delinquency, incorrigibility, abandonment, poverty and for protection from abusive homes. Some students were placed in the schools at six years of age and remained there until eighteen.
I have images of men next to the photographs of the little boys they once were. Some men have no photographs of themselves as children. The absence of this image speaks louder to me … a childhood lost. Once they were all vulnerable children.
Sexual abuse to children is not confined to institutionalized environments. It happens wherever there is an imbalance of power and lack of respect for human dignity. The misuse of power knows no economic or social boundaries. Therefore perpetrators come from all walks of life and wear many masks.
I thank all the men who had the courage to break the silence and share their stories. Through this sacred sharing my voice too, has been restored. I would like to thank you, the viewer, for your courage and openness. I hope this presentation allows you to listen and to hear these voices.
Note: The messages contained within each piece of art work have been rewritten to make concise what each man wanted to share. The interviews of these men produced many pages of transcribed material. I was respectful of their voice and have tried to keep their message intact as it was told. I take the responsibility of presenting their voice seriously.” — E. Jane Mundy
