Resistance Photography: A Year of 45 is a collective exhibition featuring the work of a small group of Philadelphia photographers who’ve come together across class, race, age, and gender, to support each other to grow as photographers.
Kaltoum Alibrahimi, Chris Baker Evens, Darryl Murphy, Sonja Nosisa, Joe Piette, Kaytee Ray-Riek, Tieshka K Smith, and Rachael Warriner.
We invite you to join us for the opening reception on Wednesday November 8, a year after 45’s US Presidential election win. Each photographer will share their own perspective to the many forms of protest, marches and public actions of resistance over the last tumultuous year.
Light refreshments will be served.
**About the Exhibit**
On November 8th, 2016, the current president was elected. And on November 9th, thousands of people began flooding the streets, intent on standing up against racism, bigotry, war and hate that threaten our communities and our lives.
Hardly a day goes by that there aren’t groups of people marching through the streets, holding vigils, facing down oppression and organizing their communities to resist the forces emboldened by “45.” There, you will almost always find a photographer, chronicling the event so that the story can reach as wide an audience as possible.
The exhibit will remain up at the Green Line through the end of the year.
