The first day was pretty heavy rain, but from then on in it was hot and sunny which made it all worth while.

It’s been ten years since pan-global collective Gogol Bordello unleashed their influential fourth album Gypsy Punks: Underdog World Strike and to celebrate they’ve embarked on a tour of more than a dozen countries, and tonight they bring their infectious style clash sound and legendary live show to London.
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.
