    Bronze in Editorial / Photo Essay

This image is part of my series documenting the deconstruction of the Confederacy in modern America. I focused on the Robert E. Lee monument in Richmond, Virginia, documenting the initial protests against police brutality to the eventual removal of the monument.

Brian now lives in Richmond, Virginia with his wife and three children where he shoots portrait and landscape photographs. He specifically focuses on monuments and memorials and their changing perception in our society.
