Making a Protest

Protests are not just about crowds but rather about individuals and their voices

The common misconception behind protests is the fact that they cause widespread commotion and disrupt the status quo of a society however they are much more.
Freedom of speech is one of the most important fundamental rights that seems to have lost its value in this technological world governed by economic and socio-political standing. Each individual participating in these protests have a story, one necessary to be heard however they go unnoticed due to their social standing and are deemed as trouble makers.
This image is part of series aimed at creating visual proof of solidarity, equality and freedom as experienced by those trying to make their voices heard.

Porus Jain



Graduation Year





With a keen interest in developing a practice that benefits those he photographs, Porus Jain is a photographer and social worker whose main subject matter revolves around photographing those communities that have become invisible to the global population due to socio-political structures and economic standing. Growing up in India, he saw the transition of the news media into a corrupt politically motivated practice, benefiting from the pain of others and always depicting the minority communities in a negative light. After spending 4 years in India photographing the oppressed groups, poverty stricken population and the rural landscape, he believes in using photography as a means to give these people a voice, to bridge the gap between them and those who can actually help them. Having experienced isolation, segregation, inferiority complexes, anxiety issues and invisibility himself throughout his childhood, the true essence of Porus’s work is very personal, in an attempt to do for these people what he couldn’t do for his younger self.
