New York Message: Work For Peace, New York, 1962

Photograph
By Jim Marshall
About the image

Demonstrating perhaps the growing urgency felt by those involved with the protest movement, the plaintive "Pray for Peace" has been corrected to a more emphatic "Work for Peace" in this graffiti found on a building in New York City.

Jim Marshall Peace Series
Jim Marshall adored street photography, and pursued several personal projects in between official assignments. One such project was documenting the evolution of the CND peace symbol as it morphed from a specifically "No Nukes" context into a broader, more universal symbol that represented the key principles of the global counter-cultural/anti-war movement of the 1960s.

Over several years Jim quietly amassed a large number of these images and specifically tabled them in his archives on an index card scrawled with a peace symbol. They remained unseen until 2017 when his estate compiled the images and published them in an award-winning book aptly titled PEACE (Reel Art Press).
