Time to Fight
As artists go, they are all angry on some level. They are measured on a scale of injustices varying from racial to environmental and beyond. They take it all with a grain of salt, they take it on the chin but rage builds inside of them.
It didn’t take much convincing for Nisha Sondhe to gather a willing group of makeup artists and dancers all around the world to express their true feelings about their work. No one held back, everyone understood the assignment, they were all ready for the fight. This photography series is the documentary of those fights.
