Women’s March on Washington – Minnesota

I thanked these folks for the privilege to capture this moment in time. Two old school social warriors with a simple message about what we should expect from our legal but illegitimate leader – a powerful portrait that conveys a world’s righteous anger towards a president who only respects himself. This movement is real & unstoppable. Women’s March Minnesota St. Paul, Minnesota. Photo: Christopher Pollard

It’s time to roll up my sleeve, do the hard work and show the world that hope can’t be trumped.

New Year’s Day Traditions

Rice, Beans & Greens. Minneapolis, Minnesota. January 1, 2017: Photo by Christopher Pollard

As a Minnesotan with southern roots, New Year’s Day to me means rice, beans and greens. I was raised on the stuff thanks to my Grandma Pollard, an 89 year old Georgia native.

I wasn’t able to make it back home to enjoy my family’s annual feast. Fortunately, I know a guy who whips up a scrumptious bowl of tradition.

Thanks Kirk & Liz.
