Photos of the Two-Month Occupation of the Old Tidemill Wildlife Garden Prior to its Violent Eviction

30.10.19

Twenty-four photos I took during the two-month occupation of the Old Tidemill Wildlife Garden in Deptford, from August 28 to October 28, 2018, which I was part of, before we were violently evicted on October 29. Also included: a re-cap of the reasons for the occupation, and the shameful behaviour of Lewisham Council and Peabody, and the thugs they hired to show their power.

Celebrating 900 Days of My Photo-Journalism Project, ‘The State of London’

28.10.19

Today I’m marking 900 days since I first began posting a photo a day on the Facebook page, ‘The State of London’, on the fifth anniversary of when I first began cycling around London on a daily basis, taking photos in all 120 of its postcodes. Thanks to everyone taking an interest in this project!

The Green Generation: The Furious Energy of Young People and the Global Climate Strike

21.9.19

My report about the Global Climate Strike on September 20, 2019, and, particularly, the protest in London, in which I applaud the young people fighting for their future, discuss the architects who were amongst the adults joining in, and ask what benefit there is in the criticism of Greta Thunberg and Extinction Rebellion by some anti-capitalists.

Celebrating 800 Days of My Photo-Journalism Project ‘The State of London’

19.7.19

Marking 800 days since I first began posting a photo a day on Facebook (and later on Twitter) from my ongoing photo-journalism project ‘The State of London’, in which I cycle around London’s 120 postcodes, recording the fabric of the city and its changes, and which I actually began five years earlier, in May 2012.

Celebrating Seven Years of My Photo-Journalism Project ‘The State of London’

12.5.19

To celebrate seven years of my photo-journalism project ‘The State of London’, in which I have been posting a photo a day for the last two years, from my archive of photos covering all 120 of the capital’s postcodes, here are my reflections on how the project began, and what it has come to mean.

Extinction Rebellion’s Urgent Environmental Protest Breaks New Ground While Drawing on the Occupy, Anti-Globalisation and Road Protest Movements

18.4.19

It’s the fourth day of Extinction Rebellion’s occupation of four sites in central London, as part of a demand for immediate political change to tackle the already ongoing global environmental catastrophe. If you can get involved at all, please do. As Extinction Rebellion explain, this is an unprecedented climate emergency, and we need to do what we can to change the way we operate immediately.

It’s 700 Days Since I Started Posting Daily Photos From My Photo-Journalism Project ‘The State of London’

10.4.19

700 days ago, on May 11, 2017, I began posting a photo a day on a new Facebook page I’d set up, called ‘The State of London’, marking five years to the day since I’d consciously embarked on a project that was very ambitious — or perhaps slightly unhinged would be a better description: to take photos of the whole of London by bike.

Celebrating 2,500 Days Since I First Started Photographing London’s 120 Postcodes for ‘The State of London’

18.3.19

On the eighth anniversary of when I was hospitalised with a rare blood disease, I recall how those dark days ended up inspiring me to cycle the whole of London taking photos, for what became my ongoing photo-journalism project ‘The State of London.’
