Studio 2.8, Seattle Protests, George Floyd, Black Lives Matter, Anguished Black Man Riles At Pepper Spraying Police
This Studio 2.8 photography photograph of an anguished African American man was produced on the afternoon of Saturday May 30, 2020 in downtown Seattle as a peaceful political demonstration by Seattle residents, who were there demonstrating against racial injustice, and police brutality, was suddenly turned into extreme brutality by the Seattle Police, citizens of the United States employed by local government who essentially waged war on their own unarmed fellow citizens.
At the moment this Studio 2.8 Photograph photo was produced, the Seattle Police had already begun their all out attack on the huge crowd of thousands of Seattle citizens who stood loudly demonstrating and protesting at the intersection of 5th Avenue and Pine Street in downtown Seattle, at the corner where there is a Nordstrom's Rack and a Nordstrom's department store. As the Seattle Police volleyed grenades filled with exploding tear gas bombs at their fellow citizens and then followed the tear gas bombs with ear drum bursting so called "flash bang" grenade explosives, officers within the Seattle Police cordon then also doused their fellow citizens with excessive quantities of concentrated, oily, sticky, pepper spray from large, nearly quart size red spray containers. The man in this photograph had been a peaceful demonstrator the police had doused. People in the crowd had come prepared with pepper spray antidote substances, which is the milky white mixture all over the man in this photograph's face. The people who had helped this man recover, had pulled off his pepper spray doused shirt. At the moment of this Studio 2.8 photograph, this man trounced back from within the crowd to shout his displeasure at the police.
The Studio 2.8 Photography exclusive, first person perspective video, from the first person perspective of the Studio 2.8 Photography photojournalist who stood in the middle of the exploding "flash bang" grenades, the clouds of tear gas, and the volleys of oily, sticky pepper spray in order to be able to record and document this event for posterity the war like scene that transpired all around at the moment this photograph was produced, while the unarmed and nearly defenseless racial justice demonstrators at 5th Avenue and Pine Street tried to stand their ground, is available right here on the Studio 2.8 Photography website, from this website's video thumbnail page, and at this direct link.
