Currently I'm working on a series inspired by direct action and public protest called Our Streets. Over the period Occupy Wall Street was most active I photographed hundreds of people. Using my photos as source material, I created stickers with faces of protesters. In a street art nod to street activism, I have been putting up these stickers all across New York and documenting over time as they weather and disappear. It’s a tribute to the spirit of protest movements but also a comment on the transient and fragile nature of a unique moment of consciousness.
