A fist raised in protest from behind the bars at Toms Prison, Manhattan, on 28 September, 1972. Legendary photojournalist Jean-Pierre Laffont captured the changing times of New York City, covering everything from free love to the grim and gritty '70s.
Photojournalist, Dorothea Lange took this photo of an anguished mother and her suffering children during the Great Depression. This candid photograph has always stuck with me as it successfully set a tone for this event. The shadows & the capture of detail in the woman's face is much more than just a mother & her children, but rather provides emotional depth for the viewer.
