The Poster Project

The group of parents whose children have been murdered by police decided to make and post reminders of their sons' deaths on Mother's Day. They started at 3 a.m., and by the time the sun had risen, many parts of the city had home-made posters hanging from all the telephone poles. I photographed as many as I could between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m., when I noticed that an unmarked police car was following me. I quit making photographs, as I realized I was showing the police where the posters were. By the end of the day, the police had removed most of the posters.
