Issue: Spring 2017

Artist’s Statement

 

These six photos attempt to convey the spirit and sensibility of the Women’s March on Washington – not the masses of humanity but the human moments.  I was struck during the March, as well as while moving around D.C. before and after the March, that the marchers, who were there to register their outrage and resistance, were almost universally joyful and celebratory – a reminder of the power and profundity of connectedness and community.
