Mercedes Jelinek - These Americans, 2017

These Americans is a series of photographs depicting individuals who attended the Women’s March (January 21, 2017) on Washington DC. What began as an internet post after the election of Donald J. Drumpf, led to over 5 Million people attending marches worldwide; over 500,000 in Washington, D.C. alone. During a time of a polarized America, this day unified demonstrators, gave a voice to those who felt voiceless and fueled what many are calling the ‘Resistance.’

“I want us to really know us.”

Mercedes Jelinek produced these portraits to evoke dialogue about humanity and concepts of identity. Jelinek produced this work so the viewer can take infinite time to study each figure closer, recognize similarities and make connections with the strangers and interactions within each photograph.
