Gallery: Mark Peddigrew's 'Rise and Resist' Series Gives Power to the People
Mark Peddigrew, the creative mind behind jewelry label Cartography, isn't content to just design stunning cufflinks and necklaces--he's also always looking out for a good cause to throw his support behind. "Every June and December, I donate a portion of my proceeds to a charity," he explained over email. "Previously, it's been the Ali Forney LGBTQ Youth Shelter in Harlem."
This year, as a direct response to the insane political climate we're all struggling to keep up with, he settled on the New York-based grassroots organization Rise and Resist. To help out the charity, Peddigrew enlisted Venezuelan immigrant and photographer Kathy Boos to shoot portraits of New Yorkers from marginalized groups in the heart Chelsea. In front of coffee carts or inside flower markets, the group modeled his new fist pendant necklace and talked about why they resist.
