Mike BrownThe Commercial Appeal
Andrew NellesThe Tennessean
Lots of BLM and RNC photos that looked identical. The first place photo stood out as the photographer executed an idea instead of reacting to action in front of them. Second was one of the few protest photos that showed the two sides of the issue and was framed in a nice way. Third was a great documentary photo and interesting difference between the centered woman and the people around her.
