‘BEAUTY IN RESISTANCE’ SERIES FOR MILK

Yesterday Milk ran a series I shot on the protest activities at New York’s JFK after the signing of the Executive Order restricting those of seven predominantly Muslim from entering the United States, regardless of Visa status. From the story posted yesterday…

“There have been countless protests since Inauguration Day all over the world, and as a photographer, you feel compelled to document what you can in times of upheaval. Where the women’s marches were gargantuan in scale, I found the aftermath of the executive order signed to bar immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations most telling in the faces of the people the order seeks to affect. At the invitation of a friend who is helping oversee the makeshift camp of voluntary immigration attorneys within JFK’s Terminal 4, I ventured out on a bitterly cold Friday morning to photograph a large demonstration that was more subdued but equally powerful in its representation of those demonized by current hateful rhetoric. Dozens of Muslim Americans joined together to hear speakers (including an elderly Jewish woman who survived the holocaust of WW2) talk of messages of peace, and partake in a large Islamic prayer service in the parking lot outside the arrival hall of New York’s busiest airport.”
