The artist said that this image “reveals a powerful moment for me as a Black man.”

Description

Cleveland native Bryan Clark was photographing peaceful Black Lives Matter demonstrations that turned violent on May 30, 2020. This photograph captures, recalled the artist, “the chaotic moment when protesters outside the Justice Center threw tear gas canisters back at the officers. . . . I see [here] so many people united and protecting each other while also standing up for those that we’ve lost who can no longer stand up for themselves.”
