“My Girlfriend is a strong advocate for equality between men and women in all shapes and forms, as a man, I have to support her in any way I can, and only together can we get equality for all. This photo shows how equality will fall with only one fighting for it, if there’s two, that fight is now stronger, and every person added gets us closer to finally achieving equality.”
ARTIST BIO: Zakayah Yahsharal is a Grade 12 student at Princeton High School.
PROJECT: Photography students were challenged by art teacher Lindsey Holliday to create imagery based on their own personal passion or connection to themes of Peace and Social Justice in regards to Equality and Equity. Students viewed and discussed the Equality/ Equity Illustration, Bisa Butler’s The Safety Patrol quilt, Shepard Fairey’s American Rage poster, and Frank Willis Thomas’ Branded photograph. They also viewed the series published by Amplifier Art, 12 Conversations Seek Common Ground. Students were encouraged to develop their ideas in a plan and create their artwork using media and techniques of their choice.
