The G20 London Protest Photographs taken by Phillip Reed are trying to convey the truth of political demonstrations so rarely seen. Reed took these photos in order to show how the protests were completely the opposite to how they were portrayed in the mainstream media.

He explains that though there are bursts of violence in demonstrations they are usually short-lived as well as few and far between. It is the media that sensationalizes the few extremists to make it look as if hundreds of people are causing mayhem.

The G20 London Protest Photographs offer an alternative to the images seen in the news that too few people ever get to see. Stats for Revealing Activist Photography Trending: Older & Chilly
