These photos look past the chaos to see the people behind this impassioned fight for equality.
When Natalie Keyssar graduated from art school in 2009, she was convinced she wanted to be a photojournalist instead.
She didn't want to spend her time by herself in a studio. She wanted to be out in the world, among the people exploring whatever was going on at the time.
She also found while studying painting that subjects that related to current events, activism, and protest movements inspired her. The young artist was using a lot of photojournalism as reference for her paintings in art school.
