I've been documenting demonstration and activism in the UK for the last five years. These images focus mainly on public sector cuts and university fees protests. My motivation in attending public demonstrations with a camera isn't really journalistic (at many events, photographers often seem to outnumber protesters - there's no shortage of images being captured). It's more about trying to give a sense of the spirit and feeling of the event; the excitement, colour and dissent that I think gives public demonstration it's strength.
