On December 16th was Reclaim Power, a non-violent demonstration which aimed to host a people’s assembly just outside the official summit, for people’s voices to be heard. Danish police, unprovoked, reacted very violently, with teargas, pepper spray and baton attacks. A quarter of the demonstration (250 out of roughly 1000) was also arrested, but the assembly took place, if not where initially planned.
I was with the blue block (the main body of the demonstration) until they got completely surrounded by police, around 13h00. I managed to climb a lightpost and to get pictures of police violence against the demonstrators. The full gallery is accessible over there.
Along with Luminous Landscape, one photo website that I follow daily and greatly admire is Mike Johnston’s blog, The Online Photographer. So it was a great surprise this morning to find that, in the context of asking his readers which was their favourite photographers, Mike had featured my work, after it had been nominated by Dave Sailer. The whole story is over there.
There is no link from the main website, but a new gallery has been added yesterday. I took part in the biggest demonstration ever in Denmark last Saturday, gathering some 100.000 people in the street to protest against climate change and political inaction.
Who is this book for?
There is a short answer to that question: this book is for outdoor people who want to bring back better photos from their trips.
Why we take photos
A few days ago, I contacted publishing house Rocky Nook, proposing to write an entire book expanding my ”Guide to digital mountain climbing photography, and they have accepted! I have already started work on it and publication is planned for early 2011.
This is a great new development for me, and judging by the other books in Rocky Nook’s collection, the finished book has the potential to be really beautiful! Stay tuned for more details…
