Featured in Tangent Books Publication4th December 2011
I am pleased to announce that a series of my photos from the Stokes Croft Riots were featured in a new Tangent Books publication ‘ Bristol Riots by Louis Davis, Jason Davies and Mark Cains. If you want to purchase the publication please go to the Tangent Books Website
The Stokes Croft Riots kicked off on a balmy Friday evening in April 2011, the flashpoint seemed to occur when a raid on the squat Telepathic Heights on Cheltenham Road led to a full scale riot culminating in the damage of a highly contested new Tesco Metro Store.
I was lucky enough at the time to live straight opposite Telepathic Heights and was able to follow the riot from the ground and from above street level. I also witnessed the interesting aftermath, the clean up, the anti-tesco tea party.
