Big props for these two putting on the dramatic. Loving the transition from doing mostly landscape stuff to exploring mixing ideas from dance and music. Bouncing ideas between them has got me excited to shoot even more than when I really got into it a year ago.
Students and community members stop a prisoner transport from leaving after police arrest a protester at the Silent Sam statue on UNC Chapel Hill's campus for wearing a mask.

Shoes for Soccer // On the beach there was a large group of boys from the university playing soccer and an equally large group of girls playing tag. The gender division was quite noticeable; of course our group wanted to play soccer and said that they would introduce me to the girls if I wished so that I could play tag with them. I declined this offer as the rules seemed a little unclear and I didn’t want to intrude on a group of perfect strangers. As a compromise, one of us went to get a soccer ball for our group. He soon returned, having left his shoes as a deposit against returning the ball in one piece! //Chloe Smith, NEH Director of Studies and Teacher Trainer // Photo from Sittwe, Myanmar (Burma) // More on our blog at link in bio.
