Police Place Photojournalist in Police Van During Demonstration at Republican National Convention
I think I got this picture on the eve of the first day of the convention when police and protesters squared off on Walnut Street, a skirmish broke out and I saw this photographer I didn’t know get zip-tied and whisked away. The crazy thing was that I wound up sharing a hooch with him on a US Army base in Mosul four years later but didn’t recognize him until I was looking though my images a few years after that and stumbled across a less dramatic frame in which his face was more visible. He confirmed it was him but I’m not going to call him out because we’ve lost touch and I have no idea how he’d feel about it now. Small world yo.
