Picturing Resistance In Gallery 4

Picturing Resistance presents images from marches, protests, rallies, and demonstrations, showing people, in the public view, voicing their passion for change. Public protests embody dissent and express  the urgency for policy change. While voting can directly influence decisions and policy making, the power of protests can shift voting behaviors in marginal voters, and empower disengaged voters

Our juror, Ken Light, photographer, author, and a Reva and David Logan Professor of Photojournalism at the University of California, Berkeley, selected these works from online submitted images.

Melanie Light and Ken Light’s book, Picturing Resistance, serves as the inspiration for this juried exhibition, and a must own book for anyone interested in social justice movements in the past seven decades. 

About the Juror
Ken Light, a freelance documentary photographer for over fifty years, focuses on social issues facing America. A recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, his work has been published in twelve books, in magazines, exhibitions and numerous anthologies, exhibition catalogues and a variety of media, digital and motion picture.

His most recent book Course of the Empire, published by Steidl, portrays a decade of mounting tension in a polarized America, from Wall Street to the rural heartland and is a portrait of the American social landscape and is a riveting historical and visual record of a complicated country in a complicated time.

With These Hands
Gallery 4 presents an exhibition of work by Ken Light selected from his book With These Hands integrated in Gallery 4 with Picturing Resistance. The images in With These Hands present a vision of migrant child labor in agriculture.
