An African American male gestures as he passes U.S. Army soldier Christian Garcia, during protests sparked by the murder of George Floyd. Gesture. June 2020. From My Americana, a long-term in depth photo-essay on the United States. Started in 2015 with the intention of recording a contemporary body of images which depict the USA and its people. In 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic, civil unrest and a divided electorate sent the project in a differing direction.
