Abstract

Artist Statement: I am currently a student at the University of Missouri-Columbia, majoring in journalism. I discovered a passion for journalistic photography in late 2019, and have been pursuing photo opportunities ever since. I feel particularly drawn to events in which people showcase genuine emotions, and I consider it an honor to be able to capture these beautiful moments. In these four photos, I attempted to capture two sides of the growing racial divide in Missouri. The photos titled “Hawk” and “Salute” were taken at a celebration of life for police captain David Dorn in Saint Louis, Missouri. The photos titled “Shout” and “Tunnel” were taken at a black lives matter rally at Faurot Field in Columbia, Missouri. These images showcase the humanity shared between these two groups of differing opinion.
