Having come of age in the 1960s and early 1970s, the powerful images and news footage of marches and violent protests of that time seemed to define the face of public dissent. Photographing the 2017 Women’s March, 2017 March for Science and the 2018 March for Our Lives in Seattle, it quickly became clear that these marches were quite different from the angry protests of the 1960s, though the diverse issues presented are equally serious. People of all ages marched. Grandpas wearing pussy hats. Families with kids in strollers. People from all walks of life, united by an opportunity to voice their concerns. Many of the signs displayed wit and humor, and some expressed anger. If there was one theme that bound these marches, I felt it was a demand for respect. Respect for women. Respect for the rights of ALL people. Respect for our planet. Respect for science. Respect for our children’s right to attend school without fear. Respect for individuals as opposed to corporations. A demand that our leaders respect our democracy. When the signs are put away, how do we respectfully move forward?
