OWS and on [Oct. 13th, 2011|10:15 am]

Photography at Occupy Wall Street went really well this weekend. I'm hoping the images will be published soon. In the meantime, here's a photo of Chelsea Elliot, one of the women pepper sprayed by an NYPD officer after she'd been herded into a pen -- all for reasons no one's been able to articulate. Seeing the video was the single incident that made me realize I had to go to New York.

The park itself was a buzzing hive that's managed to exist and develop a library, a media center, a notary public and a full time sanitation force of 50 people -- the amorphous collective has managed to feed itself and survive for a month now despite having zero bathrooms, which is all very impressive.

You can see the video here, Chelsea's in the black midriff shirt.





I'll keep you updated on the status of the real photos. In the meantime, I'm off to Rhode Island for the Drowning Girl shoot. There will be dispatches from the lake.

I am anxious to see more images.

And wouldn't it be great to see your images and, if he's been there, Richard Bram's photos of the scene. Seeing the different perspectives of two incredible photogs always jazzes me.
