Mel Rolleri’s NYC: We The People

I had the great honor of interviewing renowned street photographer Mary Ellen “Mel” Rolleri recently for WorldWide Magazine, published by Siena International Photography Awards “SIPA.”

Mel tirelessly documents protests, parades and everyday scenes from the streets of New York City. Thank you to Mel for sharing her thoughts and stunning images. As the Greek saying goes, “If it were not for hope, the heart would break.”

On Saturday, January 21, 2017, the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, millions around the world joined in solidarity as protesters held the first Women’s March on Washington, the largest single-day protest in U.S. history. Mary Ellen “Mel” Rolleri marched, too. She joined the protest in New York City, snapping photographs along the way.
