Behind the Lens at the Nation’s Capitol: January 6 2021
Since 2015, local photographer, Nate Gowdy has been working on a personal project to document the Trump era’s political campaigns and culture. On January 6, 2021, he was in Washington DC to document the atmosphere around the Congressional confirmation of electoral votes for Rolling Stone. The day was interrupted by a mob attack on the country’s capitol building. Gowdy shared his experiences with KBCS’s Yuko Kodama within a week after the event.
