In Protest by Yalda Pashai-F
I am a 20 year old photography student currently studying at Ryerson University in Toronto where I learn to express my opinions and inner feelings through image-making. Born in Iran, I always believed in freedom and equality. In this spirit, I participated with the protest to close down the School of the Americas funded by the U.S. Army, located in Fort Benning, Georgia. The protesters are composed of various peacemakers and are here dressed as the dead. This particular image is from a series based on this protest.
(editors note: Yalda is a student assistant for the Magnum workshops going on now during the Contact Photography Festival in Toronto….i may also publish some of the best from all 6 workshops running now. -david alan harvey)
