Last Saturday the Occupy Amsterdam rally was held in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement. The rally brought a varied group of individuals to the scene and I set out to capture the different faces of the movement and why they were there that day. This is the result. Scroll over the images to meet these people and read what they have to say.
I was out doing the dutch thing with some family here in the Netherlands yesterday. Yes, you guessed it, riding around on bicycles along the dutch canals. Just adding this portrait of my cousin that was taken while we were being transported by the water taxi. Yes, water taxi, same principle, just on the water.
I find Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to be an ideal base; it is a central point for international work, it is a hot bed of photography (the World Press, FOAM etc.), it is on the right track for a sustainable lifestyle, and last but not least, the friends and community are amazing.
One of these dear persons is Anna Keenan, an Australian climate activist whose work within the International Youth Climate Movement has been invaluable to the explosion of climate movements across the globe. She is a uber passionate individual who holds the need for climate justice and stopping the impacts of climate change dear to her heart (and on her neck). Without her skills in organizing, her intelligence and her drive, the climate change movement would be a step back. I recently got the opportunity to photograph Anna here in her adopted town of Amsterdam. Enjoy
