Kevin Miyazaki has created portraits of protesters in Madison, Wisconsin that will be exhibited at two venues this month. 100 photographs will be for sale at each venue, and he will donate his proceeds to Progressives United, an organization founded by former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin.
“These portraits were made on the sidewalk outside the Wisconsin state capital building in Madison. During the protests, the unofficial theme, expressed in words, drum beats and car horns, has been, “This is what Democracy looks like!” This is what Democracy looked like to me, in the form of faces, signs, buttons, and hard hats. “
