Chilean Student Protests

I had the opportunity to cover many protests and marches of the student movement in Chile.  The cry for education reform has continued in a sustained way for over two years.  It was fascinating to follow the leaders and watch the youth's courageous political action.  I learned a lot about how to go about photographing protests (and to bring a lemon to suck on, which helps cut the tear gas).
