Just a Modern, Everyday, Ancient Protest

Though not normally a fan of obvious image manipulation, I think there is value in the juxtaposition within this piece. The photo of the woman was taken recently. She was a protester at the Denver Women's March in January of 2017. The collodion wet plate-like styling, however, evokes an earlier time, the dusty western outposts of the 1800s. The fact that her protest, as a Native American and a woman, is both relevant now, and certainly would have been relevant then, perhaps speaks volumes.
