This Sunday I'm going to be up at Occupy Wall Street shooting portraits.
Looking for an assistant who's in town already and feels like carrying lights & holding backdrops.
I can't really keep blaming "the media" for not covering this thing right if i'm "the media" and I'm sitting home watering my plants.
I'm planning on a series of studio images on the street with backdrops and lights to put a face on what's happening, a studio environment to separate the person from the surroundings and document, to the best of my ability, a small portion of who the 99% are. If you've got ideas of who I should meet or where I should go, feel free to email or twitter. I"m kyle (at) kylecassidy.com
If you're at #OccupyWallStreet and would like to participate, add me (@kylecassidy) on twitter and find me on Sunday. I'll be there all day.

Thank you, Kyle!!! Thank you!
I'd volunteer, but I just found out there's a bench warrant on me in Deptford, New Jersey.
You lawbreaker you. J-walking again were you?
Identity fraud and driving while intoxicated. Not as thrilling as it sounds.

You folks rock! Can't await to see the pics. Best wishes, Frank Boehmert from Berlin, Germany
That's such an awesome idea! Can't wait to see the results.
Lookin' forward to what you see & bring back!
Bravo! Thank you for doing this (from someone who's too darn far away, but who holds the protesters in her heart).
Looking forward to seeing what you find, Kyle. I'm glad you are "the media." Go safely, & please don't let your plants die.
That sounds really cool. I hope it comes out great.
You may want to consider carrying a large bottle of water and a small bottle of baby shampoo in case of pepper spray. You probably won't need it, but someone else probably will. Also, I don't know if you wear contacts or not, but if you do, leave them out. Being anywhere near pepper spray or tear gas with contacts in has a way of really ruining your day.
Oooh, that poor guy. I missed that post, but I figured it was worth mentioning just in case. Especially the contact thing. During the DNC protests here in Denver I had a friend whose contacts actually fused to her eyeballs from exposure to tear gas. I'd hate to see anyone else have to go through that. It was really hard to watch; I can't imagine what it must have been like for her.
Stay safe. Do great things. I look forward to seeing the results...

Seek Ministry of Truth,
aka Jesse LeGreca: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/10/06/1023341/-MIC-CHECK!
The cutie in the Union hat on the still in that first video. He's been knocking it out of the park when talking to mainstream media goons. Hard even for the MSM to peg him as a dirty hippy, he looks like such a regular pool hall guy...
