Recording History

by

Following a series of high-profile detentions under new British
anti-terrorist legislation, including the arrest of an architectural
photographer and the stop-and-search of a BBC photographer, the group
I'm a Photographer, Not a Terrorist! is holding a mass action Saturday in London to protest the abuse of terror laws.

"Photography
is under attack. Across the country it that seems anyone with a camera
is being targeted as a potential terrorist, whether amateur or
professional, whether landscape, architectural or street photographer...We must work together now to stop this before photography becomes a part of history rather than a way of recording it."
