Photographer's Note

[*note added after uploading the colour==> I've also uploaded a B/W version (which I now prefer): ]


This being 11 Sept, I thought I would post a related photo. I took this image during an anti-war protest last year.

9.11 was, of course, a world changing event. I remember the day quite well, I was living in Yogya, Indonesia and it seemed like someone making a strange joke when I first heard of it. Living in a Muslim country helped form my views of that day I guess, and the general atmosphere was a mix of sympathy, fear, and the dishing out of 'just desserts.'

Five years later, and I think alot of us share this woman protestor's message: Peace Please.


About the pic: I wish all the officers were looking our way, and that the protestor was a bit closer, but it still gets the message across I think...


This was also my first picture published in NOW Magazine, which is Canada's largest independent news weekly. These days I do stringer work for them.
