This gallery compiles images and captions from three photographers, featuring images they chose to represent their experiences of covering marches and protests in Milwaukee.
The photographers are Anthony Boyd, LaTasha Lux of LaLux Photography and Dwight D. Williamson Jr.
My current obsession is the struggle of Black Lives in my city. One of the most segregated cities in the country, Milwaukee is an otherworldly place where longstanding and well-documented truths of one community are commonly discredited, ignored and unseen by neighbors only blocks away. I am obsessed with documenting these struggles, capturing our fight, telling our stories and sharing the pride of being Black in Milwaukee.
My dream is to move spirits. To humanize, in hopes that one day Black Lives will finally be recognized. Finally Matter.
LaTasha Lux, LaLux Photography
I am a proudly tattooed wife, mother, lover of sci-fi, book nerd, “Disnerd” and photographer. Photography has been my passion for several years. If I had to name a particular style for my photography, I would have to say photojournalistic, although I love shooting portraits and special events. Being able to freeze a moment in time — a kiss, a smile, a laugh — to me, is like magic.
Dwight D. Williamson Jr.
Dwight D. Williamson Jr. is an artist, athlete and activist based in Milwaukee. He has an extensive background in youth development, public health and economic development. When he isn’t telling stories, or fighting for social justice, you can find Dwight biking the Oak Leaf trail, or trying to “break 80” at a local golf course.
