In a series of captivating photographs, Mateo Zapata pays homage to his hometown of Chicago, and the essential workers and organizers there striving for survival and a more just and equitable world. 

Mateo Zapata utilizes poems, interviews, and more, interspersed throughout the photo series, to record one of the most pivotal years in recent history: within these pages are joy and exhaustion, blank stares and warm smiles, masked faces and fists in the air. It is a celebration of unity between communities of color, and the powerful potential therein. It is a reminder that hollow gestures of solidarity mean little without sincere action behind them—action that insists on, lifts up, and defends the humanity in ourselves and in others.
