Description: This collection features some of the work of Washington D.C. and New York City based videographer Eddie Becker. Becker’s interaction with videography began via Sony Porto in the 1970s, and still continues today, now via iPhone, among other materials. Becker’s work is often notable for its emphasis on the interview format, and features interviews with protesters, working class people, passers-by, and activists. As such, his footage tends to bridge the gap between local activism and global political movements.
