New York, January 2012, a set on Flickr.

Regular readers will be aware that, since the start of this year, some of my articles have featured photos I have taken (see Photos: The “Austerity Isn’t Working” Protest Outside Downing Street and ParliamentPhotos: May Day Celebrations in London, Including Occupy London ProtestorsOccupy London, May 12: Photos from St. Paul’s Cathedral Protest and Occupy London, May 12: Photos from the Bank of England Protest and a Call for Global Solidarity, for example).

Photography has been a love of mine since I was a teenager, but it is something that I largely let slip after Guantánamo took over my life six years ago, and my last analogue camera broke and I failed to buy a new digital replacement. Fortunately, my wife gave me a great digital camera at Christmas, which has now become my constant companion, and, as a result, I’ve now set up a Flickr account, and will regularly be uploading photos on Flickr and then providing notification here.

This first set of photos I’ve uploaded contains the photos I took in New York in January this year, during unseasonably good weather, at the start of my two-week visit to the US to campaign for the closure of Guantánamo on the 10th anniversary of the prison’s opening, which also involved me visiting Washington D.C., San Francisco and the Bay Area, and Chicago. I wrote about my New York visit here. More photos of my US trip, and then of my other activities this year — which included a visit to Kuwait and some travels in the English countryside, and which have increasingly involved me travelling around London as a camera-wielding cyclist — will follow soon, and I hope also to add some archive albums of my earlier activities before I became a full-time chronicler of the US government’s crimes at Guantánamo and elsewhere in the “war on terror.”

Andy Worthington is the author of The Guantánamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison (published by Pluto Press, distributed by Macmillan in the US, and available from Amazon — click on the following for the US and the UK) and of two other books: Stonehenge: Celebration and Subversion and The Battle of the Beanfield.

    Thanks, Sister. Coming up next will be photos from the protests for the closure of Guantanamo in Washington D.C., the photos from the Bay Area and Chicago. I’ll also be posting photos of my visit to Kuwait, and various trips to the English countryside, as well as some political actions in London, and photos taken during the many bike rides I’ve been undertaking in recent months around London.

    Glad you haven’t lost that talent – I still love photography.

    Thanks, Toia. That was uptown, in Columbia University, very close to where I was staying.
    And thanks, Lucy. Great to hear from you. Still hoping to make it out west to see you one of these days – and tell me, do you still have my old – very old – photo albums?!
