OCCUPY PORTRAITS

OCCUPY PORTRAITS

As the Occupy Wall Street movement continues to garner global attention, New York City photographer, Eddie McShane, has been diligently setting up a portable studio at Zucotti Park and documenting the many faces behind the protest. He also goes on to say why he's chosen to capture these images:

I feel that stripping away all of the background noise and just showing the people demonstrates their undeniable humanity. Their faces tell their story. What I learned is that these people are not whackos, anarchists, or indigents. They are overwhelmingly working and middle class people of all backgrounds who feel that their government has failed them and does not represent their interests.
