During a long-term project I was doing on the Ku Klux Klan, I came in contact with several organizations within the White Nationalist movement. I’ve had a unique opportunity to document these groups without restriction over the past five years. These particular projects were difficult to document - without some sort of symbolism or racial innuendo in the frame, some of these people are no different in appearance than someone you'd pass on the street. Instead of images of individuals doing household chores or looking like the average person going about their business, I choose to document them during defining moments in their lives - moments of camaraderie, protest, gatherings/social events and leisure. I didn't feel the need to editorialize this essay… the images speak for themselves. Some may say that I’m humanizing these people; I challenge that whole-heartedly. Would you rather see a bias view or something that was recorded just as it happened without personal opinion attached to it? You are free to make up your own mind; to me this is what photojournalism is all about.
