Rick Reinhard: Movement Photographer
Please join us in wishing photographer Rick Reinhard a very happy 70th birthday.
At a celebration to commemorate this milestone in his life, people testified to the extraordinary role he has played for social justice movements over these many decades—giving visibility to struggles ignored by the mainstream media, truth telling, and documenting the movement for generations ahead.
His powerful images have supported movements for liberation in El Salvador, environmental justice, anti-war, labor, immigrant rights, civil rights, #BlackLivesMatter, electoral campaigns, anti-apartheid, and much more.
At Teaching for Change, we were honored to have Rick serve on our board and also to document much of our own work over the years in schools and author events. Not only would Rick take dozens of amazing photos at each event, but the next day he would bike over to our office with the disk of photos and his own keen insights about the talk or action.
We look forward to continued collaboration in the years ahead.
Here are just a few of our events he has documented so beautifully. Click each image for the full album.
Rick contributed many beautiful photos for our book, Beyond Heroes and Holidays. Here are just a few.
To use any of these photos, review the photo archives, and/or contract with Reinhard to photograph an event, email Rick Reinhard.
