When the protests started happening in NYC, I really wanted to be out there and document the history that was unfolding in front of us.

This article was motivated by the fact that I believe that, as street photographers, it is our duty to document what is currently happening in the world. When I heard about a BLM march in Vienna I decided this is the kind of event I want to document, to capture, and to share. I am …
