G20 Pittsburgh Protest

I had the opportunity to cover the G20 protest in Pittsburgh (up close and personal). I felt a lot of mixed emotions because Pittsburgh is my hometown. I know all the streets and love the people. It was crazy to see it as a police state as if George Orwells novel 1984 had come true! There was a ton of foreign journalists and they were hoping for a clash, it almost happened. I do not agree with this form of protesting, however it was a unique opportunity to cover as a local photographer. It was also my first time getting tear/pepper gassed!
