Seeing Through the Throng

Robin Fader | United States


Marching for women's rights again. Divisions are deep and emotions expressed are endless. Fear, glee, sadness, anger, disgust, frustration, to name a few. These photos provide insight into the passion of the people behind the most recent abortion protests – faces and sights not typically seen, and what I found when navigating deep through the thick crush of people at abortion protests/rallies in Washington, DC. My focus is specifically not just on protest signs, but rather the emotional canvas on the streets.

Robin is a Washington, DC based, multi-Emmy award-winning commercial producer and photographer.  Her career has allowed her to split her time among corporate portraiture, advertising and documentary photography projects.

She has worked for NBC4 Washington, GW Hospital, Medstar Georgetown University Hospital, SDKnickerbocker, Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, Toffler Associates, NBC Sports Washington, Telemundo44, SAMHSA, the Flex Association and many more.

Her photos have been featured on CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley, Canadian Broadcast News, Washingtonian Magazine, Bethesda Magazine, Shutter Magazine, Michigan Today, on NBC Washington, DC and in Transition, a documentary photography book. Robin has also co-authored the award-winning documentary photography book 2020 Unmasked. Her work has been shown at the International Center of Photography, NYC, Photoworks at Glen Echo Photo Slam 2021, Rise up.BLM Photo Exhibition 2021, Washington, DC and the 17th Julia Margaret Cameron Award Exhibition, FotoNostrum Gallery, Barcelona 2022.

Robin has been named winner of the documentary photography category by the 2022 International 17th Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Women Photographers and the 17th Pollux Awards.

Robin’s wish is that in the years beyond her life, her photographs will help us remember, recover from and ultimately repair the wrongs of these troubled times.

She welcomes pro-bono work for non-profits.
