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.
Kisha Bari is an award-winning photographer from Australia who is passionate about capturing people through portraiture and visual storytelling with a focus on humanitarian issues. She has worked with a range of subjects from America’s union workers to Native American leaders, and from world-renowned ballet dancers to rockstars.
Kisha has been featured in three solo exhibitions at Photoville, New York City’s biggest photo festival; her portrait documentary How Sandy Hit Rockaway (2013), and ReSisters : Behind the Scenes of the Women’s March (2017) and this year’s ‘The Meaning of Now : Living Life with Cancer’. Her work has been published by numerous media outlets including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and Cosmopolitan Magazine.
Kisha most recently photographed the I Am A Child campaign with Creative Director & activist Paola Mendoza, which can be seen at the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee through December 2018.
