Occupy teams with AIDS activists in a New York protest. We’ve all been looking for what the Occupy movement will come up with for warmer weather and perhaps, judging by this photo and its caption, Occupy will occupy all other social justice causes. it will certainly boost their membership and reception.

I saw this in yesterday’s Lens Blog “Pictures of the Day.” New York Times photographer Marcus Yam captures a sleeping Occupy protester shortly before a police confrontation over sidewalk space. 
Viewing it in my news reader, I had to click through just to confirm that the photo, and the Occupy action, came from yesterday instead of last Fall. Not sure if there’s any message here about dormancy.

Bag’s Take-Away:

As you can see from these screen shot of Getty Images’ ordering page, they uncharacteristically missed the Occupy Wall Street action in Zuccotti on March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day. Odd, too, because this event not only marked the movement’s sixth anniversary but in true “if it bleeds, it ledes” fashion, it got plenty rough. More ironic than the lack of March 17th imagery, though, are the photos from the 18th showing the police sweeping up.

In contrast, this screen shot is from the FB page of Dan Bellini. The collection is made up of pictures taken by Daily News photographers, some AP  photographs and also photos taken by an independent photographer published at CNN’s citizen-journalism site, iReport.

Bag’s Take-Away:

After Tuesday’s “clean sweep,” some OWS pics are now beyond ironic. A protester seen scraping paint off the pavement at Zuccotti a few weeks ago as Occupiers pre-empt eviction/wash down. …Now thinking prison inmate with a toothbrush.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Here’s a rough edit offering last night’s iconic photo of the White Shirts manhandling Occupier youth as Zuccotti was taken, along with eviction stills from CNN. The second is more telling in terms of the massiveness of the police presence crawling over the place like ants. But, of course, the key juxtaposition is between #1 and #3. 

The battle here is a massive PR war — the struggle for hearts and minds — playing out between the protesters and the city in front of the media. So the real question is: did this Reuters photo win the action for Occupy, or will the Mayor’s gambit work? In other words, following Bloomberg’s bet, will more people sympathize with the police based on floods of grimy shots of NYC’s sanitation force cleaning up the remains?

Bag’s Take-Away:

Shots like this marginalize the Occupy Wall Street action and reinforce the stereotype — these blue collar types “looking down” on the protestors — that they’re just a vague radical fringe. (Interesting to note, by the way, that the protests, not just confined to downtown, are literally taking the case to where “the 1%” live.)

(photo: Andrew Burton/AP caption: Protestors affiliated with the “Occupy Wall Street” protests march the restaurant Daniel on East 65th Street in New York, on Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011. The crowd marched through out the Upper East Side neighborhood, protesting outside the homes of various billionaires and bank owners)
