Protest in Louisville, KY 
2020
 
Police surround protestors in Louisville. The artist, Jon Cherry, speaks about his work in this way: “A photograph should be able to tell a story and invoke a reaction.” The dark exposure together with the haze, presumably from tear gas, creates a sense of grief. The story that is told here is one of community and standing together in solidarity for an essential cause.
