Self proclaimed Lebanese street artist, surfer & skydiver, "EpS" recently posted this poignant work of art with the header, "Power to the People."

The photo shows a sukleen worker glumly walking past what appears to be a giant wall outlet. Ironically, the "power" that EpS refers to is depicted as electricity, an every day energy source that Lebanon goes without all too frequently. Thus the masses are akin to the worker: energy-less and gloomy without a spark to light their way.

EpS also tacked on a message of his own, directed to those viewing his photo: "In a country where we lack almost everything and where one has to struggle everyday giving it all without getting anything in return...Lets claim the power back!"

A moving notion from so simple a picture.
