Thematic Photographic 81: "Feet" v.1.0 - March On


"Silent March"
Raleigh, NC - October 2009 (Click to embiggen)

Thematic Photographic hosted by Carmi - Button Image by Smarmoofus Hosted by Written Inc.

I covered this event at great length back in October for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, but to recap briefly this was a "silent march" in memory of Jammie Shantel Street, a young mother of three gunned down outside her children's daycare. Her estranged boyfriend has been charged in the shooting. The Wake County Coalition Against Domestic Violence, a group of advocacy and law enforcement agencies, hosts such a march any time a DV related homicide takes place in Wake County. The purpose of the marches is twofold. To remember the victims specifically, and to raise awareness of the problem in general. For more related content on this and other events, click here.

I like your idea of taking a group of marchers and showing the image out of context ~ it depersonalises it. I tried a crop of your image just above the knees and for me felt it said more.
