After documenting the Black Lives Matter Movement marches and rallies for the past 60+ days I decided to focus on this group of young folks.
Like most of the photographers out there I was thinking of creative ways to document them. Because it’s more than Foto-J. It’s turning into essays. reportage’s, documentaries and of courser portraiture.
So here you see portraits of the community organizers and I just pulled them aside to get a portrait. It was a bit difficult to do a group shot because all the organizers weren’t present.
The general assignment is to cover the event wholly. But after 60 days it’s prolly time to focus in the individuals, get into their story. So there are so many elements to shoot.
The age range of the organizers goes form 18-31.
Most of my work of the “No named” group can be found on my website at brianbranchprice.com under reportage. They start out of Washington Square Park in New York for their demonstrations. The strategically march through out the city entering neighborhoods, that are gentrified, diversified, creative, conservative and resistant.
Although very organized, they don’t have a name they associate with. They give speeches, on topics as civil rights, voting, local history, Black lives, women, trans, and other walks of life. They have a tight security presence and protect there marchers from outsiders, disrupters, police, confrontational to a limit but respectful of the law.
The group has their own focus but supports other BLM marches and rallies. They conduct themselves with respect, professionalism and leadership and camaraderie.
Should you support them on rallies wear black and inquire about their go fund me page .
