Lee Park, Charlottesville VA
Occupy Charlottesville folk at the feet of old trooper, R.E. Lee. This not a bivouac, rather, a convenient place to camp.

We, the people are of all colors, classes, and beliefs. We realize we’re the ones with the power to check institutionalized greed.  We saw the Arab Spring. We saw Occupy Wall Street. We stood up. Every day, we’re creating change globally and face to face. We’re demonstrating for socioeconomic justice and feeding whoever comes by hungry. We have no leader.  We are developing solutions together. We are the 99%.–Occupy Charlottesville

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.

  1. Lee’s day was about States rights. Today it’s the peoples rights! A never ending scenario!

  2. One of the ploys used here in Britain to belittle OWS is to say: there they are, drinking their Starbucks coffee, eating their croissants and using their iPhones. How foolish are they to bite the hand that brings them such riches!

    Does the fact that I, too, eat, drink and talk disqualify me from calling out injustice? I’m writing this on an Apple computer, which I quite like, but its existence does not justify huge differentials in wealth and power.
