Jack Cockle – Chained

Artist: Jack Cockle
Title: Chained
Grade: 11th grade
School: Holden High School
Teacher: Kristin Lamoureux

Photo taken at the I-80 pedestrian overpass in Berkeley using Canon EOS Rebel and long exposure. My intention was to photograph the movement of the automobiles only, but then I stepped back and included the chain link fence and found this was a more powerful photograph. It contrasts our freedom of movement with tight controls and restrictions, a conflict found in many parts of our society today.
