Portraits of Occupy Wall Street Protesters

Portraits of Occupy Wall Street Protesters
Despite living in New York City, the photographer hadn't visited the site of the protest until October 11, 2011. What he found was people, young and old, from all walks of life who had gathered to be heard. He invited these activists into a portable studio he had set up to take formal portraits without any distractions. McShane's photo series, entitled "The Occupiers," is a collection of these portraits from his visit on October 11th and 14th.
