Description

This image celebrates the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that granted American women the right to vote eighty-seven years ago. Inspired by documentary photographs of peace and social justice movements of the 60's and 70's, community members were invited to participate on a staged march to celebrate women's struggles and achievements, reflecting on the importance of individual contribution to collective empowerment.

About Bia Gayotto

View Profile »

“My work adopts methodologies that involve an engagement with the stories of others To gain insight into the lives of my subjects I use ethnographic strategies of interviews and fieldwork. My interest lies in exploring the complex relationship between people, places, and stories, examining and translating into visual forms, feelings of belonging, displacement, human interconnectivity, and the transitory nature of life.” Gayotto’s work was included in The Armory Show & Tell, a salon-style exhibition that launched the Armory’s 25th anniversary celebration.
