I came joint 2nd in the Canon Iconic image competition, with the photo, Pushed aside.
Pushed Aside was taken as I went in behind the riot police at the G8 riots in London. I had slipped in-between the riot police as they made their way down to the main headquarters of the protestors, I followed the Police through, exiting out straight out the other side of the protest and getting photos from the other side of the protest.
Just after mid day there was a protest chanting “Welcome to Pig City” and “No Borders no prisons no capitalism” they headed down Regent street the police quickly confined them to the pavement then hurded them down a side street towards Carnaby Street. The Protestors made it to their head quarters, where they were held in by the police until the Riot squad turned up, well I saw two van loads arrive. They then proceeded to remove the protestors from the their head quarters in London’s west end.
