This Is America Photography shares their best shots from street demonstrations in 2020


The Boston Hassle is very lucky to be able to display a curated selection of black & white photographs depicting scenes from the political action we witnessed this past year. The stark lack of color in each shot is reminiscent of textbook photographs of the Civil Rights and Anti-Vietnam War Movements of decades past. We are reminded of how little time has actually passed since the social uprisings of our forebears, and we are compelled to understand that we are living in historic times–and that our fight is far from over.


“Thank you again for giving [us] the opportunity to share our story and how we captured it this past year. More people seeing the true power of the people means this can be translated into art, inspiration, and motivation; inspiring people to make policy change, to save lives while improving themselves and the community is something we’ve always been passionate about. These obviously only covered a sliver of this year’s reality, I hope you appreciate and enjoy these.” -This Is America Photography in an email to Sophie Lou Yarin, Boston Hassle EIC
