"Legacy: The 45th President"
He has been called many things:
His image directly associated to an orange-dusted snack.
An outspoken megalomaniac.
A beacon for the white nationalist/"alt-right" movement.
But one thing that is the most fearful, and important, that many can't say without repulsion:
On January 20th, 2017, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. In opposition of his inauguration, thousands of citizens marched outside our nation’s capital. The following day - January 21st - The Women’s March, a grassroots call to action to preserve women’s rights, as well shed light on marginalized peoples nationwide, turned into an international rally and exceeded the anticipated attendance. A small but moving expression of the people’s dissatisfaction in Trump, the work of activists only continues from this point.
“Legacy: President Trump” is an ongoing personal series that will be updated with photo essays and additional media. It will focus on the people and collective mass that will be greatly affected by Trump and his administration.
