There were clashes and confrontations as anti-racism protesters tried to stop the march. Both Ryan Dyer and Shane Eaton documented the events as they unfolded and sent their pictures to Your View.

It’s not often we choose to profile two photographs but this week is an exception as both the above images make use of low light conditions to highlight their subjects. In the top one, a section of the Iranian ancient city of Yazd is illuminated by natural light with the tunnel falling into darkness. In the bottom one, photographer George Calin has exposed just for the light falling on the face of two Chinese workers in Romania as they seek help to return to China.
