This project focuses on OCCUPY OAKLAND, and the individuals that make up this widespread movement. The movement belongs to thousands of people with different backgrounds and concerns. It is anything but homogenous, despite common perceptions of narrow interests and narrow demographics. The strength of Occupy lies in the fact that a professor, a laborer, a student, an immigrant, the unemployed, and a business owner can stand together demanding change. This project will be a visual testament to the diversity of Occupy and will provide faces/images that might replace and personalize events and activities that otherwise fall prey to media characterization.
