Harvey Milk Photo MontageA blog I read from time to time, East Village Boys, has a montage of photographs by Dan Nicoletta, a photographer, political activist, and friend of Harvey Milk. The photos cover some of Milk's life and the environment of the San Francisco Castro district in the 1970's (note: this particular post is G-rated, but many of EVB's posts contain adult content).
The movie Milk moved me more than I've been moved in a long time, but it wasn't Harvey Milk's death that got to me--it was watching so many people getting together for a cause they were so passionate about. I saw the movie the week after the Prop. 8 fiasco, so the scenes in the movie struck a specific chord at the time. The pictures over at EVB show how real the environment the movie portrays really was. I can't imagine how both empowering and frightening that time period must have been back then.
Check out the post, and if you haven't see Milk.
