Photographs of Black Lives Matter & Rhodes Must Fall in Oxford
Race and inequality
"On 9th June, I was walking on the high street and planning to head back home before I noticed that many photographers with their big cameras were standing opposite the Oriel College and waiting for something to happen. I checked my phone and realised that it was the Rhodes Must Fall protest in response to the global Black Lives Matter events. I ran back home, took my camera, put on the best mask I had, and recorded this events. I was fascinated by the special visual expression and flexible space created by protesters under the pandemic. "
