    Episode 2.11: Four Years of Trump Protest Photos

    Welcome to Show Me Podcast Episode 2.11: Four Years of Trump Protest Photos. For the past four years, I have been photojournaling protests against Donald Trump and his Administration.The recent Black Lives Matter protests brought a new wave of photos, so many so that it caused me to look at the entire album. With the election coming up it seemed like a good idea to review this project and look to overarching themes.From basic civil rights to democratic principles, the same themes kept appearing over and over again in the protests. They were:RacismImmigrationGender equalityLGBTQ rights Science and facts The right to earn Freedom of expressionSee the photos in the podcast or below, or just listen to the podcast to hear about those protest trends, the major issues that define the Trump presidency. In addition, to commemorate this podcast I created the above "Cancel the Trump Reality Show" protest poster.  You can download it for free here, or order a print here.Please share this episode/photo essay with your friends. Most importantly register and vote.

    Early in the morning on March 2, the Fairfax County police banged on my door to inform me my mother had died. This began a surreal journey through sudden death and mourning, immediately followed by the global change and devastation caused by the coronavirus. This is my story, as told through the camera.At first, my photography was stunted and limited, but then it quickly evolved to become an expressive device. From sadness to gloom to documentation and finally the hope of a new spring, this very personal podcast and associated photographs document my creative journey.
