Day One – 9.4.2022 I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, there’s something distinctly tribal about a big XR protest. Things were advertised to get underway at ten am in Hyde Park. I arrived at nine, to find a few flags, a few police vans and some steward, in the park not far … Continue reading April 9 / 10.4.2022 – In London with Extinction Rebellion
Well, I didn’t make it to COP26. Bunch of reasons for that. Work mostly. The nearest I managed, thanks to an inside tip, was to be at the local station when two of the ladies in red started their trip to Glasgow. Well I watched the proceedings on the news. It doesn’t seem to have … Continue reading XR – London, November 21.
Extinction Rebellion, August 22-25 2021 Intro - Here we go again. Extinction Rebellion came to London again this week, and so yet again it was time to book a Travelodge, catch a train, and start photographing the latest chapter in what’s become something of a project.

Saturday. London. The protest weekend. The first time in over a year I’d travelled overnight, the first time since August that I’d been out of my provincial hometown.

Wile it’s all under the umbrella cause of opposing the current policing bill (a cause which anyone with a … Continue reading Palestine, Colombia and Kill The Bill – Protest 29/5/2021
Aberystwyth, Wales - 31/8/2019 Protests and photographing them have become a part of my life in recent months. I think I’d seen or attended a grand total of three (two of them as a random passer by) before April this year. Today I photographed my sixth since this spring. The difference with this one, is … Continue reading Prorogation and Protest
You might have read my last post, where after a few weeks I’m developing the film from the Extinction Rebellion Protest. Well this week we’ll look at something a little more recent: The XR52 Protests in Bristol on the first of June, which I’ve been developing this week. Almost exactly a month ago, Extinction Rebellion … Continue reading Captured On Film Pt 2 : Film Photography and XR52 Bristol.
It’s a bizzarre thing, that after traveling hundreds of miles to shoot the pictures of the last two XR protests I covered, the third should be breaking out in my backyard. Nevertheless it was so. When I took a look around online for the next protest or march or action for what’s now becoming a … Continue reading XR 3: When Rebellion Breaks Out In Your Backyard
