Photographer Jonathan Bachman on how he got that seminal photo of the Baton Rouge protests


It's a photo that's gone around the world via newspapers, television and social media: Two law enforcement officers in heavy gear ? who appear to be Louisiana State Police ? approaching a young woman in a long dress who is standing in the middle of Baton Rouge's Airline Highway, directly in front of Baton Rouge Police Department headquarters. The woman is about to be arrested for blocking the highway; she stands with perfect posture, impassive.

The photographer who captured the image is Jonathan Bachman, a New Orleans freelancer who was on assignment for Reuters that night.*
