On this episode of #TreacherousTuesdays I break word I speak a bit on my photography experience during a riot. Yeah, the one in Washington D.C. during the Trump Inauguration, January 20, 2017. Join me as I reflect on what took place, the things going on in my mind. Join me as a share a few pointers for future budding protest photojournalists. For more words on the Anti-Fascists, check out the column written here.
“I’ll have to say that the CS (that’s tear gas) gas was pretty intense. I was the only free press photographer so close that I got a whiff of it. Being that we are talking about me, I’m going to have to admit something: I’m an action junkie.
I don’t know if it’s the military “Operation Enduring Freedom” in me, but I’m the type of guy that actually runs towards the fight, towards the conflict, towards the action. That bug in me… was the reason why I was the only photographer that got that close.” ~ Johnny Silvercloud on covering the mini-riot during the Trump Inauguration
