june was a strange month. bermondsey is an inner city area with a carnival, mainly made up of kids from local youth groups.
jubilee 2000 were again raising the issue of debt in trafalgar square.
one of the events that attracted most photographers was a demonstration against the monarchy outside buckinham palace. the photographers probably outnumbered the police, who certainly outnumbered the demonstrators, who seemed a nice enough bunch. after a lot of fairly inconsequential standing around, with police issuing dire warnings, trousers were dropped, skirts were lifted and a photographers formed a disorderly scrum. pure farce ensued when a police grab squad rushed in and arrested an innocent scandanavian journalist who had a very slight resemblance to one of the leading protestors (well, they both wore glasses!)
i hope he managed to talk his way out of it.
some of my work gets put into nice organised websites.
this isn't meant to be like that, but you can see some of the rest at
and you can read what I think about photography at
