The Queen’s Photographer

Well, not quite.

G20 Protest

The above shot was recently published in Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary’s (HMIC) Review of the Policing of Public Protest, Adapting to Protest.

The shot was taken after I left work on the day of the infamous G20 protests in the City of London in the summer of 2009.  I’d popped out at lunchtime to get some shots just as the atmosphere was starting to turn nasty. By the time I left work at about 10.30pm the police had herded the protesters together and were dispersing them very slowly.

The review of policing stretches to just over 205 pages in length so in case you care the shot can be found in this document on page 78!
