The discussion led with a short presentation by Atlanta-based photographer Sheila Pree Bright, who has been making protest images from the streets of Atlanta, Ferguson, and Baltimore. In her photographic series 1960 Now, Bright makes images of protesters that contradict some of the photographs we see highlighted in mainstream media. She chose to make what she describes as "uplifting images" of Ferguson, rather than depicting human rage. In the presentation, Bright highlighted a November 18 photograph from an Atlanta protest by HBCU students who were standing in solidarity with students from the University of Missouri. In it, a young woman with mesmerizing eyes glares into the camera. Bright explains that when she took this picture her subject was stepping on the American flag while simultaneously waving the Black Liberation flag above her head. Bright's final image, however, excludes both flags from the composition and instead looks like a traditional portrait. She explains that for her "there was more power in her [subject's] eyes" then there was in the act protest itself. Here, Bright attempts to make the protestor visible; she shows the fight and the person, but she deemphasizes the demonstration. This act of photographing can be seen as a form of protest; the photographer chooses to make visible the black woman.
