John Anderson's Top 10 Photos of 2018

photo by John Anderson, posted Dec. 27, 2018. #1 of 10 photos.

Staff photographer John Anderson explains the story behind his favorite shot of the year:
"On Aug. 18, roughly 400 counterprotesters confronted about 40 supporters of Donald Trump at the Texas state Capitol during the March Against Far-Left Violence. While counterprotesters attempted to disrupt the rally with noise, state troopers kept the two groups apart. As a photographer who looks for moments at protests that go beyond simple sign-holding, I was drawn to the facial expressions of each person in the photo while they look towards the Trump supporters, some of whom expressed support for white nationalism along with other alt-right sentiments."
