Activism & Protest
Be it quiet activism or disruptive protest, over the past two years we have witnessed an immense mobilisation of people banding together in solidarity. Our new issue explores this phenomenon, and what the act of protest really means.
Dee Dwyer, whose photograph is on the cover this month, speaks to Charlotte Jansen about the importance of photographing protests in her home city of Washington DC, as a Black image maker. She uses her lense to capture the passion of the crowd’s demonstrations, but also the individual stories that led the people there. Joining her in the main feature section are photographers Tariq Zaidi, Rosalind Fox Solomon, Deana Lawson, Tommaso Rada and Rene Matić.
Elsewhere, we are invited to visit the London-based studio of Peter Kennard. The artist and professor has spent his career creating striking photomontages, challenging nuclear warfare, government policy and most recently, the threat of climate change. We also delve into the archive of The Photographers’ Gallery with curator David Brittain, and explore the city of Bristol in our On Location feature with Aaron Schuman. Ingrid Pollard shares her Any Answers.
