Photographer, activist and founder of the campaign Cheer Up Luv as well as a newly launched podcast under the same name, Eliza Hatch is giving voices and victims of sexual harassment a platform to speak up from all over the world. In turn, she and those voices are changing it. Screen Shot spoke to Hatch about how photography and creative work can be used as a driving force towards positive change, as well as how to find your own voice when you don’t know where to look for it and dealing with imposter syndrome.
In recent years, ‘multidisciplinary artist’ has become somewhat of a buzzword, used by many as a catch-all term meant to help redefine what can really be described as the act of blindly dabbling in everything.
