photos of ny protest, resistance and solidarity in response to charlottesville terror
August 16, 2017
We live in an age of outrage and pushback. That’s our reality, now what are we gonna do about it?
In true revolutionary form, we take to the streets. Following the borderline race riots of Charlottesville last weekend, the call to action is thick with protest, resistance, and solidarity, as activists of all forms break through the woodwork and onto the scene.
Thanks to photography from artists like Avery Leigh White, the spirit of a movement moves through mediums, touching and activating whomever they reach.
Photojournalism is the new town crier, the new newspaper, and the new agenda. What we see in an image can dictate our world view, and inspire us to make a difference in whatever way we can.
As White captures the raw emotion of both protesters and those safe in their ivory towers, a war at its precipice is immortalized, and a digitalized uprising is formed.
From candids, to poised messages and everything in between, viewers are invited to wake up and greet the times–there is no room for sleeping in this America.
