I took this shot in 1991 in Washington DC at a massive protest against the Gulf War. I developed and printed the shot myself. The woman in the shot is deaf. She is giving an angry speech in sign language. Over the decades her passion and her ability to express herself despite her inability to talk have been a great source of inspiration for me. This photo reminds me that no matter what happens I should find a way to communicate.
