I spent a lot of time putting this together and figured I’d share it on Reddit as well as my socials.
I’m Adam, a freelance photographer and filmmaker here in Columbus. Management for the band whose song I used came to me after seeing some of my protest photos and asked if I’d be interested in throwing a video together. I went on tour with this band last year and figured what the hell.
This is what I came up with…
I was shot at by police on multiple occasions, pepper sprayed and tear gassed, chased by cops on horses, temporarily deafened by crowd control horns, disoriented by flashbang grenades, you name it… And I was definitely targeted time and time again because I had a camera. The most aggression I have seen from the protesters in the past 30 days has been tossing water bottles and smoke bombs at police officers.
