Exhibit 90

Untitled-12

This is another photograph taken during the first Stop the City Demonstration in 1983. Although many of the demonstrators had dressed in elaborate costume and were there to be seen, there was some animosity directed towards me and my camera. People suspected I was taking photographs for the police instead of the ecological magazine I worked for. In some ways any record of protest at that time, whether it was just a story in the press or otherwise would have the same effect in the sense that people’s images were there for anyone to see and use in any way.
