“Inside Ferguson,” 2015

In May I wen to Ferguson to photograph, with images of the riots from the nightly news still vivid. I found something very different. On the yellow line where Michael Brown dies was a makeshift memorial made of hundreds of stuffed animals, flowers and notes. I created a 360 degree, walk-in panoramic photo that let people step into Ferguson.

Photograph of the site where Michael Brown died. The flowers and stuffed animals have since been removed and the spot in the street has been paved over.
