Syd Shelton has been a street photographer in the UK and Australia for the past several decades. His iconic photographs of punk, protests and portraits help to tell England’s story of anti-racist activism. In the 1970s Syd was one of the team of creatives who founded Rock Against Racism. Under the slogan ‘Love Music, Hate Racism’, it was one of the first organisations that actively showcased reggae and punk bands on the same stage, attracting large multicultural audiences. At a time when the National Front and fascist attitudes were gaining increasing support, Rock Against Racism marked the rising resistance to institutionalised and violent racism.

Erik Johansen’s pictures are worth more than a thousand words. The German born, Swedish based photographer enjoys nothing more than manipulating the mind with his tantalizing visual imagery. His vivid imagination and surreal forms create brilliant pictures of surreal moments, all with a hint of the believable. Originally a computer engineering student, Johansson currently works on personal projects as well as commissioned ones.
