布里斯托爾的 "黑人命重要 "運動被拍攝下來

2020年5月喬治-弗洛伊德在美國去世後,阿克福德先生關注在布里斯托爾發生的事件,包括科爾斯頓雕像被扔進港口。

"這算是給了我一點喘息的機會,讓我想想我想拍什麼,什麼對我來說是重要的。"

"他說:"特別是對我來說,因為很多人無法走出家門參加抗議活動,這是我展示情感的一種方式,並將抗議活動帶回人們的家中。

阿克福德先生說,他的攝影作品是關於 "尋找那些真正代表當天發生的事情的情感和精力充沛的時刻"。

"這是關於找到這些敘述,不以任何方式誤導或歪曲它們,並講述人們的故事。"

阿克福德先生說,她過去走過科爾斯頓雕像時 "很掙扎",所以當她意識到雕像倒下時,她被感動了。

"當喬治-弗洛伊德被謀殺時,很多組織都發表了關於糾正平衡的聲明,我把他們拉了過來,就像對的,你要怎麼幫助?"


Following the death of George Floyd in the US in May 2020, Mr Ackford focuses on the events that took place in Bristol, including the Colston Statue being thrown into the harbour.

"It kind of gave me a bit of a breather to think about what I wanted to photograph and what was important to me."

"For me, especially, because a lot of people couldn't come out of their houses to the protests, it was a way for me to me to show the emotion and to take the protest back into people's homes," he said.

Mr Ackford said his photography is about "looking for that emotion and those energetic moments that really represent what's going on on that day".

"It's about finding those narratives and not misleading or skewing them in any way and telling the story of the people."

Mr Ackford said she had "struggled" walking past the Colston statue in the past, so when she realised it was down she was overcome with emotion.

"A lot of organisations put out statements when George Floyd was murdered about redressing the balance and I kind of pulled them up on it and was like right, how are you going to help?"
