Sara Lewkowicz's images of domestic violence went viral, starting her own fight for control of images and copyrights.
The police subpoenaed her photographs to be used as evidence against Shane. Unsure of what to do, Sara’s professor told her to contact Mickey Osterreicher, National Press Photographers Association’s general counsel. NPPA‘s and Mickey’s help have been one of the “saving graces this year,” Sara said. In the end, Shane pled guilty and the photographs were not needed—this, however, did not end Sara’s battle.
