Protests are the ongoing theme in New York and around the country, largely in solidarity against decisions implemented, floated, or even rumored by President Trump. On International Women's Day a number of rallies were planned in the city and in one case an act of civil disobedience in Columbus Circle resulted in a number of arrests.
In addition to being asked to shoot general coverage of the news of the day I was also tasked with shooting portraits and interviewing women that chose to come out for the protests. It was a great experience to hear their motivations, hopes, and aspirations for the future of the United States and the rest of the world. You can read some of these interviews and see the photos taken around the country by myself and others for CNN here.
