“from scenes of a community’s joy to scenes of anger and protest, @bydvnlln’s work expresses a profound cultural shift toward grassroots, proletarian ideals that in recent years have influenced millennials across the country. resonating with a long history of social justice photojournalism, his images reveal influences of the black lives matter ideology, both as a political program and as an ethos. in allen’s more confrontational photographs, the sense of injustice and indignation conveyed by the people who populate his images is palpable. these are people who understand that through action and mobilization it is possible to create change.” —aaron bryant
