Portraits of Protest

The photographer Robert Schultze captured images of the Occupy demonstrators which caught my eye since i am interested in portraiture.   Schultze has been to the San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, Santa Rosa, and San Jose Occupy sites. He sets up a mini photo sudio with a simple backdrop and the finished piece is in black and white. They are part of his "Occupy California: Portraits of the 99%" and this vimeo shows the people of the movement.

It seems that there are several artists joining in the Occupy portrait bandwagon most notably  Marielle Solan for the NY ObserverMartin Schoeller for the New Yorker and on the creative culture blog Yello!
