Natalie Logan Eyes the Face of Authority

This picture by photographer Natalie Logan, appeared in a column in the Toronto Star, written by Murray Whyte. Natalie, went out into the din of the recent G20 riots in Toronto and captured the faces of authority.

Whyte wrote:
She found them in the faces of individual officers, shrouded but visible behind their riot masks. Some are resolute, some are angry, some just scared — an altogether humanizing portrait of the actual people forced to execute the orders of faceless authority

Natalie's pictures can be seen at Gallery 1313, at 1313 Queen St. West in Toronto, until August 1st.
