  • Politics and Protest New Edition

    New and updated version of Politics and Protest! Packed full of new images, discussion and a glorious redesigned cover

    Don Pedro is an anonymous photographer who roams the streets of Bristol recording how people express their opinions through subverting advertising billboards, writing on walls, producing stickers and putting notes in windows. The billboards of Bristol in particular have long been a playground for a quick-witted group of political activists and anarchists who, under cover of darkness, subvert the corporate messages with their own slogans.
