Occupy Seattle portraits | Seattle editorial photographer

I made portraits of some of the protestors down at Occupy Wall Street in Westlake Park. The weather was awful and discouraged heavier traffic in the park, which has seen a few thousand people at times in the last week and a half. Props to my friend Isa Farnik for his help keeping the light stand stable as wind blew us every which way. I will be returning soon to photograph again. I’m drawn to how many different people are getting their voices heard.

I'm a serf in a feudalistic society," explained Wes Nielsen, a Safeway clerk, as he made a sign longtime coming. He participates in the protests when he can. "It's obvious to me what capitalism really cares about," Nielsen said. Photo by Daniel Berman/www.bermanphotos.com
