Yiannis Bournous

A Photo of Yiannis Bournous from the The Power of One exhibit at Bumbershoot. The Power of One featured shot of individuals who made an impact on society and the theme was heavily biased against Globalization and Capitalism.

This photo was originally taken in May 2003, by Katerina Mouratidis - a Greek-German photographer, in a Counter-Summit of the Social Movements in Geneva/Switzerland against the simoultaneously organized G8 Meeting in the French-Swiss borders.

The irony of me walking around in my Nike shoes, sipping my Starbucks latte, listening to my iPod, clicking away with my Canon SLR, all thanks to my Microsoft paycheck while watching this exhibit at Bumbershoot (brought to you by Samsung) made me cringe.. atleast for a few minutes before I went back to talking on my T-Mobile phone!
