Thousands of people gathered to march from the Philadelphia School District HQ on North Broad Street to Independence Hall in an effort to reclaim Martin Luther King Day on January 19th. The protesters formed a strong united front to address a laundry list of social concerns from ending stop and frisk and police brutality to increasing the minimum wage and education reform in Philadelphia and beyond.
Yesterday I photographed four nurses currently employed at Crozer-Chester Medical Center for the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals (PASNAP). The photos are being featured on a billboard ad running along I-95 in Chester, Pennsylvania which will advertise the dispute they’re having with hospital management over pension payments.
Obviously I had to take a drive down to exit 6 to see the billboards when the ad was up and running. Not so much fun pulled over on the exit ramp at night with cars whizzing by at 75 mph but worth the trip for these killer shots. Below that check out the mock-ups.
