Portraits from the protest, by Accra Shepp '84

Since the second week of the protests at Zuccotti Park in New York City, Accra Shepp ’84, a lecturer in visual arts at Princeton’s Lewis Center for the Arts, has been creating portraits of the protesters and those on the periphery. His collection includes people who resided in the park, onlookers who wanted to understand the movement, the police, the press, and individuals who live and work in the area.

An exhibition of Shepp’s photographs opened Nov. 11 at the Steven Kasher Gallery in New York City. For more information, visit the gallery website.
