Peace and Riot

A photo essay.

A firework explosion is loud and quick.

But a photo of a firework explosion can be quiet and still, like a nebula so distant that its furor looks fixed.

A photo of a firework explosion can also overcome the static nature of the medium, asserting motion and force.

If you caught the fireworks last night over East Rock, consider this a chance to slow them to a halt; and if you missed them, consider this a chance to experience the action.
