In a way, the occupy movement provides great photographic moments. People expressing themselves seems to make it easier for artists to express things also…
I love the informal feel of the photographs (how effectively they’ve captured the mood without looking too staged). I’m not usually a fan of the washed out look in photos (it can be over-used) but it works perfectly in this case.
These are great pictures. I’m glad that skilled photographers are taking the time to document the Occupy movement– I’m hoping that one day pictures like these will be in the history books demonstrating how Americans were actually able to band together to change the way the country works. Revolutions are not just a thing of the past.
Great photos!! Its good to see people stand up for something, especially in times like this with such disconnect with us and the government. Keep the nice shots coming!
Great photo. I support people in the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The pictures capture the true essence of an anti war groups. Its just a shame there are not many more of them around.
