The inspirational faces of the RiseUp AS ONE concert at the Mexico border

This image was removed due to legal reasons.

Today, on the border here in San Diego just across from Tijuana, Univision and Fusion put on a massive concert for unity, featuring Andra Day, Juanes, Tigres del Norte, and many more. In a 2016 that’s seen rhetoric ranging from the merely divisive to the outright racist, we gathered here today to remind ourselves that there is another, better way. Here, we saw an audience filled with all kinds of people: families, an old Colombian dude wrapped in his nation’s flag, Chicano hipsters, little goth kids, San Diego surfers, and so many other people who might not otherwise find common cause.

I took a simple 35mm lens out into the crowd and tried to capture the diversity as best I could.
