Capture Your Freedom

Various Artists

In celebration of FDR’s pivotal 1941 address, photographers were encouraged to explore the meaning and legacy of these freedoms — freedom of speech & expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear — and how they related to our lives today, answering such questions as: How do we achieve freedom? What does it mean to be free? How do we defend freedom today?

About Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park

Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park is the first memorial dedicated to President Roosevelt in his home state of New York, and the most significant presidential memorial located outside of Washington D.C. The four-acre Park, which sits on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island, is designed by modern architect Louis Kahn and is widely regarded as an architectural masterpiece. The memorial celebrates the ideals expressed in FDR’s Four Freedoms Speech and his vision for a better world: freedom of speech and expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear. Since opening in 2012, Four Freedoms Park has welcomed more than 750,000 visitors from around the world.
