Born from an Instagram post requesting images from Black photographers, activist and protester Shawn Batey created Capture the Movement with the purpose of spotlighting & amplifying the work of Black Photographers covering the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Sparked by the death of George Floyd, protesters across the country took to the streets demanding change, seeking an end to police brutality and the senseless taking of Black lives.

Capture the Movement seeks to answer the question, “Who is a protester?” 
 
This traveling photo exhibit comprises 60 images by 60 Black photographers varying in age and experience. The exhibit was organized in one month by a crew of volunteers while funds were raised for printing of images. This exhibit was first seen by the public in Brooklyn, New York on October 4, 2020 at Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Plaza.
 
Shawn’s vision is to create a space to honor the Black perspective while providing an opportunity to meet the photographers. The exhibit fosters Black artistry and a time for the community to come together in support of a movement for change.
