Photo Reference Pack: Riot

Paris, 17th of December 2019, I was there for the huge protest against, well, pretty much everything because most of French people are in deep shit. (Me too probably but I don’t realize it yet.)

I was there the whole day so you’ll get all the outdoor lighting situations of a cold dark winter. Since this is a huge protest, there are different groups and mood. You will see the different factions of protesters, musicians that give the rhythm, people yelling, people with dark looks, sad faces, some happy ones to be together in the streets, some people doing illegal things like climbing everywhere and lighting fires (I blurred their faces).

The closer you get from the front of the protest, the more it becomes a riot.

Red flares in the night.

But in the end, the cops always ruin the party by throwing anti-riot grenades with a taste of pepper in the middle of the crowd, so cool for your eyes and your breath.
