On January 21, 2017, The Women’s March on Washington became the biggest global movement in American history: 1.2 million people flooded the streets of Washington D.C. and more than 5 million people marched in over 300 sister marches in cities across the globe.

Women, men and gender-nonconforming people of all races, ages, faiths and abilities came together to raise their voices and march for a “world that is equitable, tolerant, just and safe for all, one in which the human rights and dignity of each person is protected and our planet is safe from destruction.” – Women’s March

With unique and exclusive access to the courageous women organizers of the movement, Kisha Bari documented them throughout—from meetings at their New York headquarters to organizing in hotel rooms in Washington D.C. and concluding on the day of the march.

ARTIST BIO

Kisha Bari is a New York-based photographer from Australia who is passionate about capturing people through portraiture and visual storytelling. Her range as a photographer and her personal approach have allowed her to photograph an array of subjects, from America’s union workers to high profile musicians and ballet dancers in the studio, as well as a photojournalist.

Her portrait documentary “How Sandy Hit Rockaway” on the recovery of residents in Rockaway, New York after Hurricane Sandy was a featured exhibit at Photoville in 2013.

Kisha’s work has been published in many media outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post and Rolling Stone.

Robert Pluma is a Mexican-American and Coahuiltecan multimedia documentary artist based in Brooklyn, NY. He is dedicated to creating intimate documentary work on human rights and social justice to generate shifts in perspective and systemic change.

Robert’s visual art practice extends beyond traditional print media and the screen to reach deeper into the physical world.

Robert’s work has been featured in film, print, television, and digital media. Recent projects include Tribeca Film Festival Transmedia award winner Sandy Storyline [as video editor, audio engineer, and content contributor] and personal projects focused on gender identity, veterans abandoned at home, and the effects of the US criminal justice system.

Past creative projects have involved data visualization, electro-mechanical installations, light sculpture, curation and other innovative means of conveying information and ideas.
