A visual documentation of politics and protest during lockdown

The Beginning by Rianna Patterson

It was a spontaneous project, I was watching TV and then I heard loud chanting from outside, I immediately took my camera and ran out the house. There was a memorial gathering for George Floyd’s death in Folkestone. It was timed just around the time for the ceremony in the US. During that week there was also a peaceful protest for Black Lives Matter in Canterbury – I was in the middle of the crowd capturing the momentous event.
