"Out on the Streets"
"As public sector service cuts take place and plans about changes to the higher education system come into effect, there has been an uprising in street protest in the UK.
The project shows both peaceful and violent reactions to changes in society under a new Government and the response from police and stewards trying to control events. It poses questions about the effectiveness of police tactics during modern demonstrations, the validity of new and alternative methods of protest used by some groups and the sudden re-awakening of a student political movement."
The below images were exhibited at The Bluecoat Arts Centre in Liverpool as part of the Look 11 Photography Festival 13th May to 26th June 2011. Also images from this show have featured in national media recently.
The festival was a great success, hopefully I will get the opportunity to work with this festival again in the future.

"The photos were great – they were exactly what we were after in terms of capturing the networking, the high profile speakers, the Awards winners and also the fun of the Awards dinner. It was great to have such an involved photographer at the event capturing as much as possible and we would be very happy to use you again"
