Finding Beauty in Riot

I took my kids to downtown Portland, where the protests and riots are taking place. I gave them each a point and shoot camera, and told them they could photograph anything they wanted (even if it said a “bad word”). I needed them to see how angry and hopeful people are, and how much inequity and injustice exists here at home. Surprisingly, their camera images weren’t full of hate and curse words, but rather full of big and small images of hope and love. The images below are truly documentary images…no posing, no direction, just kids exploring their environment and the organic moments that follow.
