Bill Livingston | NY, United States

Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY, 9.23.20

After the news broke that the officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s murder were only being indicted for wanton endangerment, I walked from home to what I knew would be a huge turnout for yet another protest for yet another senseless killing and the injustice arising from it. Using the light shining from the huge digital billboard of Barclays Center and, in some instances, the built-in flash of my Sony RX100-V, I moved in as close as I could to capture the emotions on the faces of the protestors, even though they were wearing masks––knowing this wouldn’t be the last protest I document. Every day since George Floyd’s death at the hands of the Minneapolis Police on May 24, Americans of all races, generations, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds have taken to the streets to make their demands known, to fight for justice, even to fight against justice––peacefully and otherwise. Change is happening, but all too slowly. I want to shine a light on what the future could hold and the work that needs to be done.
