SEPTEMBER 11, 2010

Eric Ford-Holevinski

This year, September 11th was marked by protests over an Islamic center slated to be built close to Ground Zero. I took some photographs of the ensuing protests, although in the hours after I went home, the activity there only became more intense. I am not trying to take a side with the following images; they are for documentation only.
