About the Book
"Occupy Austin: The Encampment Months" documents the activities of Occupy Austin, a group in Austin, Texas who participated in the international movement created by Occupy Wall Street.
The book contains 50 photographs and is presented chronologically. It begins with the first day of their encampment at Austin City Hall and includes photographs of marches, arrests, assemblies and the camp itself. It ends with the group's eviction. The photographs are a subset taken from the larger book, "In Search of a Revolution: Occupy Austin in Photographs and Text." That book extends a year beyond the eviction.
