Photographer's Rights ~ Stand Your Ground

On Tuesday 21 June 2011 six photographers were assigned different areas of London to photograph. Some used tripods, some went hand held, one set up a large format 4 x 5.

All were instructed to keep to public land and photograph the area as they would on a normal day. The event aimed 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 what happened.
