Dailies: 50,001 & overCoverage of Protests and Racial Justice-PhotoThird PlaceLos Angeles TimesEl SegundoSeeking reliefThe angle of this shot is excellent in showing the different expressions of the people in the photo. The closeness also intensifies an already intense situation, as does the sharpness of the liquid in the shot, giving it a visceral as well as emotional quality that comes through.Jason Armond
Dailies: 50,001 & overCoverage of Protests and Racial Justice-PhotoFourth PlaceThe Mercury News/East Bay TimesSan JoseKneeling protesterThe choice to shoot this moment from a lower angle intensifies the power struggle and inequity that is at the heart of the protests. The police officers create a dark barrier, contrasted by the lightness of the other half of the composition, which is inhabited by protestors on their knees. Overall strong composition and exposure.Dai Sugano
