A photo of protesters carrying signs that read

Christopher Tucker spotted these protestors in Asheville, North Carolina, a location he says he frequents often. When he asked the man in the center of the photo why the flag was upside down, the man told him it was a sign of distress. “I gathered that they were not too happy with the [Democratic National Committee’s] ‘election rigging’ because they were still using Bernie Sanders pins and signs, even though he had dropped out of the race,” Tucker said. Originally from Okinawa, Japan, Tucker has lived most of his life in Pulaski, Virginia and is currently a sophomore architecture student at Virginia Tech. He volunteers for the Collegiate Times and says his favorite photographers are Sebastiao Salgado and Paul Nicklen, who “both use photography to report on world issues,” he said.
