Stand Your Ground

Stand Your Ground:

Six photographers are assigned different areas of the City to photograph. Some use tripods, some go hand held, one sets up a 5 x 4. All are instructed to keep to public land and photograph the area as they would on a normal day. The event aims to test the policing of public and private space by private security firms and their reaction to photographers. All six photographers were stopped on at least one occasion. Three encounters led to police action. This is how it happened.
