Oakland Women's March  2017-2018-2019

Marching in Oakland, California, with like-minded folks of all stripes and colors created an amazing feeling of solidarity. The rage and anger against Trump's behavior seemed to explode in Oakland and across the country. It fueled and directed attention to women's rights and human rights issues. The march reminded me of the heated protests during the 1960s against the Vietnam War and during the civil rights movement.

As a photographer I wanted to capture that spirit and energy. The challenge was to photograph quickly with a discerning observe, anticipate, compose, focus and finally to click the shutter intuitively, without stumbling over a shoe or a curb or some other unforeseen obstacle. While lighting, composition and other photographic elements are important, my primary intent was to capture that special something...a revealing moment, a compelling relationship or people and signs in an ironic juxtaposition. The Oakland Women's March was filled with such opportunities.
