Press Photographers’ Year


Chuffed to get an image (however weird and disturbing) selected for the Press Photographers’ Year.

The exhibition is showing at the Littleton Theatre at the National Theatre on London’s South Bank, it’s on till 19th September and is free to enter. There is also a book available to order here spanning two years of the competition.

A big thank you to the organisers, well done to the winners and as the PPY says:

Our aim is to demonstrate…that even in an age of rolling television news, internet and satellite communication, the traditional still image burns the keenest, fastest impression on the public conscience and is the most effective way to show the world the world as it really is”

Press Photographer’s Year

Belated post..

Check out the Press Photographer’s Year exhibition at the National Theatre, London Southbank.

Chuffed to get a couple of images selected.

An image from Dale Farm. Irish travellers Nora Quilligan and Danny Sheridan celebrate their wedding day. This was the third of four weddings held in quick succession by families at Dale Farm anxious to solemnize marriages before the New Year when Court of Appeal judges ruled that Basildon council can put into action its much delayed eviction operation.


The second image was from riot police on horseback trampling protesters outside the Israeli Embassy. National Palestine Demonstration, Stop Gaza Massacre. London. in January.


Thanks to the organisers and Chris for the photos.
