Remembering Marion Barry

Marion Barry’s funeral procession took place over three days in early December. On December 5th, 2014 I took my bike and camera and set out to interview and photograph people who came out to line the processional route.  I was struck with how many DC residents had a personal connection to Barry – it was clear he was very beloved by many people.  People had so many different things to say, but if I had to sum it into one sentiment it would be thanks.  Marion Barry was a champion to these people and he will be sorely missed.
