Rape is an act of dominance that can happen to anyone at any time. It can be with a person you know or don't know. It is irrespective of race, gender or sexuality. And that is what twenty-year-old Yana Mazurkevich tries to say through her photo series “It Happens”.

Her photo series was inspired by the Brock Turner case, where a former student-athlete at Stanford University, was released after serving three months in a county jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster in January 2015.

The defense used for Turner by his family and friends was that it was a mistake and that it should not destroy the accused's life.

There was much public outrage after Turner was given a 6 month sentence for sexual assault and further released at 3 for good behavior.

Mazurkevich's photo series is a powerful explainer and hence went viral on Tumblr, Reddit and Imgur.
