Four Years of Trump Protests

A protest poster designed for Show Me Podcast Episode 2.11: Four Years of Trump Protest Photos

Welcome to Show Me Podcast Episode 2.11: Four Years of Trump Protest Photos. For the past four years, I have been photojournaling protests against Donald Trump and his Administration.

The recent Black Lives Matter protests brought a new wave of photos, so many so that it caused me to look at the entire album. With the election coming up it seemed like a good idea to review this project and look to overarching themes.

From basic civil rights to democratic principles, the same themes kept appearing over and over again in the protests. They were:

  • Racism
  • Immigration
  • Gender equality
  • LGBTQ rights
  • Science and facts
  • The right to earn
  • Freedom of expression
  • See the photos in the podcast or below in a photo essay format, or just listen to the podcast to hear about those protest trends, the major issues that define the Trump presidency.

    In addition, to commemorate this podcast I created the above “Cancel the Trump Reality Show” protest poster. You can download it for free here, or order a print here.

    Please share this episode/photo essay with your friends. Most importantly register and vote.

    Why I Post Protest Photos on Flickr

    For the past four years, I have posted protest photos on Flickr with a limited creative commons license. My intent? To empower other storytellers to further their own conversations with the images.

    A Virtual Tour of Olympic National Park

    Let me take you through a virtual tour of Olympic National Park. So many of us have lost trips and planned vacations to the coronavirus quarantines. I hope to take you to the magical place I feel in love with last year, Olympic National Park.

    Episode 2.9: Photographing Rock Shows with Jason Miller

    London-based Rock and Roll photographer Jason Miller visited to discuss shooting rock and roll shows.  He broke down how he goes about it, and how crazy it is to shoot a show in ten minutes flat.

    Our conversation began with a discussion of an incredible photo from The Clash, which was featured on their seminal album London Calling, shot by Pennie Smith (who didn’t want to publish the image). Then we discussed a punk rock photo by the legendary New York photographer Godlis.

    Once we got into Jason’s photographer, we had a wide variety of shows to discuss, including:

    • The Dropkick Murphys
    • Backyard Babies
    • Wildhearts
    • Morrissey
    • Sinead O’Conner


    A full transcript of the show with photos embedded is below.

    You can find Jason via his site rocknrollcocktail.com (and don’t miss his books there) as well as on Instagram (and everywhere else as @jasonmillerca). You may also want to check out Episode 2.7: Rock’s Greatest Photos!
