PHOTO OF THE MONTH BY JUSTIN VOGEL

This is the first of the two photo of the month for January (we had a tie again between Justin Vogel and Diada) as voted by “Burn My Eye” members. As always we ask the photographer, in this case Justin, to treat us with the backstory of his photograph or a personal insight.

I took this photo at the one year anniversary of the Women's March in NYC. The previous year I had gone down to DC to protest Trump's inauguration but after a year of his hatred and narcissism I just didn't have it in me to make the trek again. I think I made the right choice because this rally was uplifting, energizing, and inspiring. I believe this photo captures the general consensus of the crowd: Fed up, and disgusted, but with a sense of humor.
