BLM Protest Long Island New York Part Two

By Posted on 1 min read 4737 views

With everything that is happening in the world and all the unrest. I hope through the use of my lens to offer a little quite in the storm, even when the message is screaming to be heard

Here is part two of my photo series from the Black Lives Matter protest I attended on Sunday June 14th. As I explained in my last post I decided to post these photos in black and white. In some ways I find black and white photos to be more expressive when it comes to profound news events like this. With black and white photography you are less distracted by color and advertising. The simplicity of black and white helps to reinforce and focus in on the subject matter, distilling it down to shapes and forms, to lightness and darkness, and the under lying emotion in the moment. I hope I was able to capture that in these images. With everything that is happening in the world and all the unrest. I hope through the use of my lens to offer a little quite in the storm, even when the message is screaming to be heard.

    Hello Allie, hope you’re doing well! I heard New York is ending the lockdown, take care and stay safe 🙂

    I love the latest blog post with the first series of photos, and as I told you I think it is crucial to speak from our platform and put our talent/skills/works into this in order to create the change. We’re all part of it and your photos talk by themselves!

    All the best!

    Black and white also has a more documentarian and journalistic feel which is probably what you were also going for. These protests are important. I’m glad that they’re still going strong and we must not relent and let their messages be forgotten.

    These are highly representative of the protest going on!
    Your photography is to emphatic as I feel like I’m there.

    Sono assolutamente favorevole con la prostesta. Il problema è che nel 2020 non dovremmo più protestare per far valere i nostri diritti.

    Thank you for posting these. I have been to many protests in my day and I never tire of seeing powerful photography. Beautiful. <3

  • Like in your last post – part one – I could look at these photos again and again… they’re really touching, they make me sad and encouraged at the same time! You have a great talent to transport those feelings, thank you!

    The unity speaks for itself when you are raised in a melting pot I speak for myself you accustomed in being surrounded by different culture and background. I learn to appreciate with respecting and embracing I never saw any different. We all are one.

  • Thank you so much for sharing all of these photos.

    Such stunning pictures – must have been an incredible mood and march!!

    We’ve been to the protests here in Berlin as well and it felt so powerful – I hope this mood stays and will move a lot!

    These photos are fantastic. And look at all the people wearing masks! Compare that to all the people who were protesting wearing masks a month before — none of them wore masks. Anyway, I also really love that POTUS shirt — need it in my life. Great shots.

    Love these pictures that you took – even more seeing all participants wearing masks :). I really like the black and white touch. You don’t need color to emphasize the issue. Everything already tells a story just looking at it. Hoping we can get closer to beating injustice soon!

    The selection of a black-and-white photo presentation reflects well what happened at that time. Thank you for showing me, Allie.

    They are beautiful photos, but it is so sad that protests like these have to happen – it’s not fair that people are treated differently because of the colour of their skin and it’s so good you can raise awareness with these photos! Thanks for sharing!

    Hope you are having a nice weekend 🙂 It’s a bit windy and wintery here!

    Wow, amazing pictures! It’s so beautiful to see people of all colors and backgrounds come together and fight for the same cause. Whether it’s out in the streets or through social media – we should all use our privilege, raise our voices and fight for those who’ve been opressed for way too long.

    Thank you for capturing this!
