Human Zoo, Occupy Wall Street,
Zuccotti Park, New York City, 2011
This image came the morning after I had interviewed many of the protestors in Zuccotti Park during the Occupy Wall Street Protests.
When interviewing these protestors, their main gripe was that they felt like 'zoo animals', constantly poked and prodded by the onlookers.
But that is exactly what they were and what their primary strength was. The shadowy figures represent both the onlooking world as well as the powerful shadowy figures that were watching intently.
