Final day! (part 2)

Posted by Jacques-Jean Tiziou (Creator)

Dear beautiful humans,

I've made it back, and after a quiet day of rest in northern Virginia with my special lady, I'm now back in Philly. 

Below's a string of images from the end of Sunday, where the 1,500-strong march culminated at Publix's headquarters. 

In this batch, you'll find:

  • Some marvelous Son Jarocho musicians
  • A lot of hugs, smiles and celebration
  • Some impassioned speeches by the farmworkers and their allies from student groups, faith communities and others who've joined them in this journey
  • Some of the cutest kids on the planet
  • A beautiful silent theater piece depicting the progress made in the last decade as the CIW has enlisted grassroots allies and major corporations in the Campaign for Fair Food.

-jj

PS As these upload, I'm now heading over to the HMS school, where I'm serving as a judge for their Expressive Arts Festival. I have a fond place in my heart for the HMS school, as one if their students and teachers are featured in my How Philly Moves mural at PHL International Airport.

I've already blogged about how challenging and problematic it can be to bestow awards to children for their art, as for each one that is lifted up as a winner, the rest can be framed as 'losers' -> I hope to be able to frame my comments today in a way that encourages an uplifting celebration of all of the participants, much like I hope that my photography of this march served as an affirmation of all those involved.

Reflecting on that How Philly Moves project, it's clear that it has something in common with photographing the CIW march: 

They're both about using photography to celebrate value where I see it in the world, regardless of whether the mainstream media market values it. And when you've helped support me in this work via Kickstarter, you've helped shift that market just a little bit, one little step towards the new world that I've dreamed of.

PPS make sure to check out the CIW updates for more narrative of the day, bonus videos etc.
