NOH8 Portraits

Photo by Adam Bouska

Founded by photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley, NOH8 is a project displaying tens of thousands of portraits as a silent protest to the passage of Proposition 8. In its three years, the project has collected over 20,000 faces with their mouths covered with duct tape and the NOH8 symbol on one cheek.

Saturday The Beat caught up with their open shoot in Los Angeles. Volunteers donated $40 for a solo portrait or $25 per person for group shots to have their portrait taken by Adam Bouska.
