I’ve been photographing the Occupy Boston demonstrations on and off over the past few weeks, and Michael over BagNewsNotes was interested enough in my images to feature and discuss one such picture, of a protester holding the “Don’t Tread on Me” Gadsden flag while protesting outside one of downtown Boston’s high-rises. The discussion hinges on what initially drew me to make the picture: the protester is using a flag most recently associated with the Tea Party movement and in so doing conflates big banks with oppressive government.
