Welcome to Tony's Blog!

Having settled in Denver, Colo., after years of living and working as a professional photographer in New York City and San Francisco, I spend my days (and quite a few nights) taking pictures. My love for photography is more than a passion; it’s an obsession, and I’m constantly in search for the next story I can tell through my camera lens.

The March to Close the Concentration Camps – Aurora, Colorado 7/12/2019

On Friday night, July 12th, approximately 2,000 people gathered in Aurora, Colorado near the ICE processing facility for the National Day of Action to protest the treatment of immigrants at the southern border. The March to Close the Concentration Camps followed opening remarks rallying protestors opposed to the inhumane conditions to which asylum seekers are subjected as they wait for their cases to be heard, as well as those demonstrating against Sunday’s planned raids targeting undocumented immigrants. Protestors peacefully marched and chanted along the 1.3 mile route at dusk, declaring “Money for jobs and education/Not for racist deportation”, “Close the camps”, and “Say it loud, say it clear/Immigrants are welcome here” as passing motorists honked their horns and waved in support. The march ended in front of the ICE detention center where 1,500 men, women, and children are currently being held.
