Now is the time to ask "what does the flag mean to you?" Actually, I started a project in the summer of 2015 called "American Portrait Project" where I carried around my grandmother's American flag and set it up in different locations as a backdrop. I asked each person who I photographed "What does the flag mean to you?" and got such varied responses. It was so interesting to see how different folks reacted to this symbol of our country. Some were proud of what it stood for and some were ashamed. I think people would react differently now. It seems as though some of those folks who were ashamed of it, now see that they need to fight for what they WANT it to mean.
