THE PEOPLE OF PROTEST
Since the latest invasion of Iraq, both the anti and pro war contingents have been a constant presence in Washington DC. In this series of photographs, photographer Paul Park takes a look at the human drama and spectacle of the protest people, including veterans who have come back from the war with a distinct and intimate point of view of what is happening on the ground. They remind us that the war has a very individual human element that is often overlooked.
