I went to the first day of the Occupy Vancouver protest with the intention of creating portraits of some of the people in attendance. My intent was not to make statements for or against the movement, but to single out some of the many and varied faces in the crowd. A movement like this is about people more than it is about signs and masks, and hopefully the 26 portraits in this series represent a picture of the ethnic, financial, and age demographics who felt it necessary to make the trip downtown in support of something they believe in.
