Photographing Protests and a Pandemic, with Alexis Hunley

January 27, 2021

In this episode, I speak with Alexis Hunley. She's a photographer based in Los Angeles California. Recently she has found herself in the middle of intersecting world events —  photographing Black Lives Matter protests and Trump rallies... all in a city that has been absolutely hammered by the COVID-19 disaster. 

We talk about how she's able to separate the photography from the reality that is happening around her. Especially as a black person photographing BLM protests. Or as a black person documenting a chanting Trump rally... all while staying safe and healthy.
