Bill Magazine — Occupy Wall Street

Bill Magazine a quarterly publication produced about the way we communicate in the 21st century. Back in October of 2011 they asked me to head down to Zuccotti Park to photograph all the protesters with their signs. Since picket signs are one of the few remaining old-school forms of expression, I thought it would be an interesting take on the magazine’s theme.

I started in the park early that morning and brought my normal lighting setup. There was so much chaos that day that most people didn’t even seem to notice my lights swaying in the wind above their heads. In the early afternoon I found myself in the middle of Times Square, apparently surrounded by an estimated 125,000 protesters.
