Piece description from the artist
These photos were taken at the Black Lives Matter fourth night of protests in Boston, Massachusetts in June 2020. An estimated twenty thousand protesters came out for the demonstration and march while Boston was still largely in shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Boston was one of many cities across the United States where protests were held following the latest in a string of police killings of innocent black people.
A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Charlie Rosenberg has been a photographer since the 1970s. Enamored with black and white in his early career he now seeks out bright colors but you will see an occasional black and white image in his portfolio. His work generally illustrates the hidden architectural gems found while traveling abroad.
After moving to Boston in 1989, Charlie fell in love with the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of the city. His work appears in a series of nine books published by Arcadia Publishers documenting the history of Boston’s neighborhoods. His most recent work features Cuba, Azores, and France.
