London Street Photography Festival 2011

This is a pet favourite subject of mine.
Being harassed by security guards and Police while attempting to legitimately take photos in a public place
And I'm sure like many of you, like me and the subjects of this project, have ended up on the wrong side of officialdom and worse still the law for doing nothing worse than taking pictures.
This 16min long video (it sounds long but it is well worth sticking with) IS provocative in places but it illustrates the problem very well.

I was pleasantly surprised to see how well the 'Boys in Blue' came out of all this.

Hats of to the photographers who made this, taking time, trouble and energy to make it happen.

Have a great weekend.
