The Constituents

The Constituents

2017

These images are from Inauguration Day (J20) and the Women's March, 2017, in Washington, D.C. They paint a surreal and bewildering picture of America in an era of extreme polarization and tension. The portraits include Trump supporters, soldiers, police, anti-fascist activists, feminist resisters and children. I am still searching for the words to describe my impressions of these events, but I left D.C. still believing in the humanity of this nation's constituents, even as the events that continue to unfold daily often contradict that sentiment and further obscure our abilities to see it.
