“Roar” is a Fotografiska New York installation which celebrates our individual and collective voices and the importance of protest moments in history, featuring work by Tish Lampert, Ginny Suss, and Kisha Bari.
Photojournalist Tish Lampert brings us on a journey through her landmark imagery that captures the leading critical social uprisings of our era and spotlights everyday heroes and change leaders on the frontlines of today’s activism. Her new book We Protest: Fighting For What We Believe In reminds us that our strength as Americans lies in the transformative power of our individual and collective voices.
Photojournalist Tish Lampert captures the spirit of the heroes and ordinary citizens on their activist journey to defend their American values during the most conflicted era in our recent history. The book charts the chronology of social-change movements that have dominated the headlines over the past several years: the fight for women’s rights and gender equality, immigration rights, civil liberties, gun violence, and the environment. Lampert takes us to the front lines of activism, where she has documented each protest and their respective leaders, as well as the legions of ordinary Americans standing together to protect the values of our great nation.
