Pilot fish around a great shark

Duane Michals protests against Trump's policy of separating children from their parents on the Mexican border in front of the Trump Tower on 5th Avenue in Manhattan, New York.
The iconic artist, know for his photography, was once skeptical about the effectiveness of art as a political protest, at least that's what he told Bomb Magazine in 1987: Art’s “political aspirations are impotent, they can never be seen. If they are, it will only be by a limited audience. (…) Power is not with the artist. Artists are little pilot fish swimming around a great shark. We have to understand the nature of power. Power is in the hands of big money and oil companies.”
Maybe that's why he's putting himself in front of the tower today.
The last time I met Duane was in 1989 in his own exhibition in the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg/Germany.
