Pops' tribute to the original Women's March is his most epic piece, featuring 45 models who posed live at Mont Vert Studio in 2017. Name of the more than 600 cities worldwide where the march took place are inscribed in the ground and the rainbow. Landmarks in the background show the international significance of the march. In the foreground models represent women who have fought for civil rights through the centuries, including Sojournor Truth, Harriet Tubman, The Suffragettes, a flapper girl, Rosie the Riveter, Rosa Parks, a flower power girl and a modern American mother.
Freedom of the Press in the Crosshairs
When reporters are forbidden to speak freely with political pawns at the border, our freedom of the press is in the crosshairs. One viewer responded, "We're all in the crosshairs."
Freedom From Shame
I wanted to celebrate the self confidence and bravery of Dylan Bader, who plays hockey despite his physical challenges. This picture inspired a statewide art competition for the Massachusetts disabled community, resulting in the "Breaking Barriers," art exhibition presented in the Massachusetts State House, 2017.
Are We Safe (Freedom Under Fire)
In the newsfeeds from the Las Vegas mass shooting, I saw a policeman rushing two women to safety. They all escaped the bullets, but wondered if they were indeed safe. Is anyone who gathers in public truly safe in today's America?
Give Now To Aid Puerto Rico
After Puerto Rico was devastated by hurrican Maria in 2017 our government was remiss in providing aid. I held a fundraiser for their children's hospital and made this image for the invitation. Based on Rockwell's "Give Now."
Freedom From Discrimination
This image, part of the Reinventing Rockwell series and shot in Stockbridge Town Hall, was made to celebrate the legalization of same-sex marriage in the US. It meant a lot to me, and perhaps even more to a collector who bought the image. Suffering from terminal cancer, he told us that he had to won this picture before he died. Based on Rockwell's "The Marriage License."
