"Photography cannot change the world but it can show the world, especially when it changes"
As a highly democratic expression of the popular opinion, the protests has always represented a specific feature of the human society dynamics and a form of people’ statement when facing either injustice or inequality. Whether is corruption, human rights, working conditions, the environment or minority rights, the people choose to object and manifest their disapproval and civil disobedience.
The protests are special moments for documentary photographers, but not only. However, photographing protests is mostly a challenging, intriguing and also an overwhelming activity. Protests are usually collective events involving a lot of people and their emotions and a lot of actions happening simultaneously. For the photographers witnessing such emotionally-resonant moments, capturing the pure feelings and identifying the moments of impact can be demanding. But the results are frequently rewarding.
As the old saying goes, pictures conveys more than thousands of words. Therefore, I invite you to view below a selection of some of the most significant protest moments captured by 1x photographers!
