Video: A Portrait of Domestic Violence

Since we first published Maggie’s harrowing story of domestic abuse in late February on LightBox and in TIME, and since the arrest of Maggie’s ex-boyfriend, Shane, photographer Sara Naomi Lewkowicz has continued to document Maggie’s story in photographs and video. Here, TIME presents the multimedia version of the story, providing an update on Maggie’s life as she copes with the challenges of moving on and taking care of her family.


Sara Naomi Lewkowicz is a photographer and first year graduate student at Ohio University in Athens.


Readers who feel they–or people they know–need assistance can call the National Domestic Violence hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE.
