A Remarkable Chronicle of the Deadly Attack Against American Democracy

"Gowdy's pictures show how close we came to losing our democracy. His book reminds us that we cannot and must not look away and that the threats against our democracy are as present as ever. I encourage everyone to page through this courageous work with eyes wide open to the violence, hatred, and lies that have swept up our politics."— Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal

Nate Gowdy had previously photographed 30 Donald Trump rallies. He thought he was fully prepared for what should have been the grand finale, but the events that unfolded on January 6th, 2021, were more than anyone could have expected. On assignment for Rolling Stone, Gowdy was one of only a handful of media who followed the insurrectionists for the duration of their attack on the Capitol. Insurrection is the only comprehensive book of photojournalism of that fateful day.

As the event transformed from protest to outright insurrection, Gowdy never stopped photographing. The result is a one-of-a-kind, frighteningly intimate chronicle of that shameful day. Gowdy shot most of the series of 124 images using a wide-angle lens, putting viewers in the middle of the mayhem. Each timestamped image, printed in rich duotone on silk-coated pages and with a hardbound cover, is presented alongside first-person insights and context about the unprecedented siege.

Insurrection, with a foreword by D.C. Metropolitan Police Officer Daniel Hodges (who was almost crushed to death defending the Capitol on January 6th), is an honest, eye-opening documentation of one of the most deplorable days in American history.
