Snapping shots from the Bay Area to Minneapolis for Richmond photographer Kori Suzuki
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but what about the person behind the camera? What does it say about them? Richmond photographer Kori Suzuki captured moments of the George Floyd protests happening in Minneapolis - the city he was murdered.
