The Oakland Protests



There has been a lot of traction in the media about protests that turn violent. Want I wanted to try do with this piece was to show how events like this can actually bring people together. Like anything, it only takes a few bad apples…

This shot was captured outside my apartment in Oakland. At this point, the peaceful part of the protest captured above had turned and masked people joined in.

This shot was looking out the window onto the street below after the protest passed by.

Shortly after the protest passed by, people living in the same complex as us headed down to the streets to clear the containers out of the street. Incredible how people can come together.
