Today, I drove out to Riverdale to photograph whatever I could. I decided to leave when one of the security guards appeared to be calling the police. I made some folks very uncomfortable. They should be. They’re participating in the commission of a crime against humanity. Too strong a language? Hardly. The same company who [...]

This set of photographs chronicles the picnic held June 17th at what is now the corporate-destroyed community of Riverdale, Jersey Shore, PA.
