Stand your Ground: Testing Security Firms with Photography in Public Spaces

(Youtube Direktcamera, via Just)

Schöne Aktion vom Shoot Experience Team aus London, die ein paar Fotografen losschickten, um im öffentlichen Raum Fotos zu schießen, um die Reaktion privater Sicherheitsfirmen zu testen.

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

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.
