The Protester

Person of the Year Cover 2011 by Shepard Fairey - Time Magazine.
Probably most people don’t know that the person who appears on the TIME’s cover as Person of the Year belongs to the Arabic world (Egypt) and her name is Sarah Mason.
It was photographed by Ted Soqui during the protest at Bank of America (Los Angeles) back in November.
The message (99%) she wants to transmit through her vinegar saturated mask, to protect herself from the pepper spray that police could eventually throw, stands for the world population percentage that is not rich.
