Photographer for TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year: The Protester

In this nine minute documentary, the making of TIME magazines “The Protester” is chronicled.  The Protester, which was included in TIME’s Person of The Year issue, is a series of photographers taken by TIME staff photographer, Peter Hapak, which showcases protesters involved with the Occupy movement across seven countries.  You can see the film here:

Hapak briefly touches on techniques he used to capture the portraits, including a humorous account of bribing one particular subject with breakfast sausages. The behind the scenes look is narrated by the photographer himself and shows viewers clips of the photo shoots conducted throughout the course of the project.
