Protesting has been embedded in my life since I was a kid protesting with the FUAR in Colombia
for fair wages for college faculty. Naturally as an adult, that tradition has stayed with me.
The way I voice myself is through photography. I use the expressions in my subjects faces to tell the story of that moment at bay. In these particular images, I wanted to do a "versus" type of feel to them — cops vs protestors.
Defunding the police has been the focus of this movement, so I really wanted to capture the joy and frustrations of both parties.
No justice, no peace!
