Photos of activists and their hopes for change. The Occupy Portraits is ready to publish, if you take action and donate now.
When the Occupy protests began, I was inspired to contribute my best efforts. As a documentary photographer, this is my activism: to offer these images in the hope that their chronicle of a movement will inspire others to continue to act boldly in the cause of universal justice.
This 572-page book of portraits documents activists from the Occupy movement in twelve cities across the United States - people like you and me, the 99%. In the interest of historical accuracy, everyone I photographed is included, presented in chronological sequence, and paired with their answer to my question, "What would you change first to make this a better world?"
