Still photographer Kyle Kaplan (The Tale, Boy Erased, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot) joined Local 600 when he moved to Atlanta in 2017. When he isn’t shooting features, he’s out with his camera capturing life around him. During this pandemic, he maintains his safety but is still active – going outside and being with nature. A few days ago, Kaplan and his sister Dylan joined a peaceful gathering of over 1,500 people marching through the streets of Atlanta, ending up at the Capitol, out to support Black Lives Matter. “It was powerful, educational, and an experience everyone should have. We saw everything from innocent children to violent S.W.A.T. teams and the darkness hissing from tear gas. The gathering was unbelievably emotional. The most power moments – however – were when I was editing my photos. I was dreaming about freedom for everyone. I don’t normally post my film work, it’s vulnerable for me to show people too much of my life. But this particular moment was so important – I had to share.”
