As the sun sets over rural North Carolina, Dwayne Dixon peers through black-rimmed glasses down the barrel of an AK-47.
I used to think, "Man, it's so sick that he travels with them doing all the visuals and stuff." Has your style changed since you first started? I work on multiple things at once, but that's just me. Being around everything, you become a well-rounded person for sure, so I don’t regret it or wish I grew up anywhere else. He brings so much good energy to the camera—I'll never have to be bored.
But I do think working on a bunch of other things helps. What's it like shooting the "Day Today" web series with Wiz? If I just put that camera on him, he's just gonna say crazy things.
In the days that followed, the "alt-left" was thrust into the global spotlight by Mr Trump's denunciation of "both sides" in the Charlottesville tragedy.
Among the Antifa ranks were "bad dudes", the President said, who used violence in the same fashion as those promoting neo-Nazi and white nationalist ideologies.
He is articulate, friendly and disarming, even when holding an assault rifle.They're marching in a way that's intimidating, as we all know is harking back to the torch light rallies of the Nazi era."While the term "redneck" is often derogatory — a stereotype of poor, uneducated, racist whites — the group wants to reclaim the mantle.Mr Dixon wants to instil honour in the word as a tribute to America's working class; people who, they say, may not realise they are being hurt by big business and government.Abandoned cars and rusted-out trailers dot the overgrown property; cows graze in a nearby paddock under the gathering shadow of pine-clad hills.Softly-spoken and slight of build, Mr Dixon is a vegan who spends his days lecturing in anthropology at a local university.Redneck Revolt had their guns in Charlottesville but never fired them.Even so, their weapons drew shock and in some cases, disgust, from many on their own side."We knew we were being intensely scrutinised," Mr Dixon says."My personal rejoinder would be like, well, who's worrying about optics when people might actually be killed? "Mr Dixon describes his feelings in the hours after the killing as akin to leaving a battlefield, shocked and distraught."I think it's made people have a much higher degree of vigilance, to recognise that dangers might be much closer to home than they imagined."Within days, the violence in Charlottesville began to take effect on activists like Mr Dixon.Folger now lives in Los Angeles where he owns a lifestyle brand called The GLD Shop, which sells clothing and jewelry. He did all the YMCMB videos; he was their right-hand camera man. I've definitely always had my own lane, but now, it's like people know even without a logo that it's a Dan Folger photo. We have a full office, full-time staff, and we will be in Vegas for Agenda, so that's the future for us. You have the seasons, so I know what it’s like getting up when it’s freezing outside, you know?Who were the photographers you looked up to when you were younger? He did the photos, the day-in-the-life videos, and that was right around when I had just got a camera. Would you agree that we live in an era where artists need to be multi-faceted to keep things interesting? I just like to start a lot of new things—I'm so ADHD. Before this, I worked jobs, 7 to 3 one time, it was a warehouse job so it was freezing, but I did that. You have the suburbs, you have the ghetto, you know?Rumours swirled around his hometown that a Ku Klux Klan rally was coming to their streets. So, fearful of a repeat of Charlottesville, he joined counter-protesters on the street with his assault rifle slung over his shoulder.The KKK never came, but police charged Mr Dixon with multiple offences."I insist upon my rights as a citizen to have the means for my own self-defence when the state is absent or unwilling to actually intervene," he says.
