II: Shoot a Cop tasked streettogs with putting their money where their mouth is, and following the stigmatized Los Angeles Police Department for a solid month, then presenting what they found with a photo show curated by YOU ARE HERE. I winners Jordan Dunn and Rinzi Ruiz. Many photographers dropped out due to bad experiences with LAPD, and on Day 15 of 30, a rogue police officer began murdering his comrades in Los Angeles. Bad press flooded the show, demanding a name change, but the remained as titled and the 12 or so remaining photographers saw our largest crowd yet at their opening, which included SFX-makeup-designed waitresses serving coffee and donuts in “pig” costumes.
