Description

Washington Square Park is a New York staple, over the years home to many counterculture movements, outsiders, youth and artists.  From Civil War-era riots, to the Beats and the Punks, Washington Square has symbolized uprising and collective action.  Nowadays things have changed as new forces shape the area, and so as photographers it falls upon us to document the evolution of an iconic place.  Perhaps in the process we can find clues to what will be coming next.

 

What to bring

Bring your camera and a fresh battery or two, plus a clean memory card.  A few additional lenses (if you have them) are encouraged.
