Some images from April 15 and 27, around the Civic Center in downtown Berkeley. Groups/parties to these demos: Black Bloc, Oath Keepers, Liberty Revival Alliance, American Freedom Keepers, AntiFa splinters, Proud Boys, Identity Evropa, BAMN (By Any Means Necessary), International Socialist Organization, San Francisco chapter of Refuse Fascism, 51st Staters, Berkeley High students, UC Berkeley students, etc. Things were relatively peaceful today, not so on the 15th.
For a useful overview of the various groups see this Berkeleyside breakdown
A collection of chance encounters, accidents, and discoveries. A couple of these pictures are arranged ("staged"), otherwise things were left alone and just slightly recontextualized. Against usual (somewhat harried) practice, with these photographs I did pay a bit more attention to exposure and composition.
Taken in the following locations:
Norwich, upstate New York.
New York City, Battery Park.
Sanya, Hainan Island, China.
Bar Harbor, Maine.
Ithaca, upstate New York.
Sergiev Posad, Russia.
In contrast to my other collections and galleries, this collection is not serialized or homogeneous in any way. Cameras and gear differ considerably, from medium format to digital.

A small collection of b/w (monochrome) photographs, taken over a considerable period of time, with very different equipment, such as Hasselblad, Nikon film and Nikon digital, the Ricoh GRD2 and Olympus.
The play with light and shadows is what makes the development of photographs in black and white so exciting.
