The 99%

20111021-202836.jpgJust found out that I got the front cover of today’s G2 Magazine in The Guardian. Delighted. Especially with the shot; people peacefully sat on the steps of St. Paul’s Cathedral beneath a huge banner: “We Are The 99%”

Despite some tense moments on the Saturday night it was generally a quiet day. When I returned on the Monday I found the camp had grown and that police presence was at an absolute minimum.

Speaking to some of the protesters it seems that the land they are camped on is owned by the church and that St. Paul’s didn’t have a problem with them being there (provided they don’t interfere with the normal running of the church, its visitors or it’s services.)

I hope when I get back from shooting the Occupy Amsterdam demo that peaceful atmosphere is still there.
