Occupy Wall Street Photos from the Vault

by Emon Hassan on March 12, 2012

Just days into the Occupy Wall Street movement, as protesters had just started claiming their spots at the Zuccotti Park, I’d taken some photos with my iPhone while passing by.

These were taken approximately a month after the first set of photos. I went back after I became excited about an idea for a photo project but gradually the interest in it deflated. Happens.

It’s hard to explain the feeling one has of being there without being there. That’s why I let my pictures do the talking.
