Close up of  huntsmans's tunic with hunting horn used to communicate with the hounds. The photographer spent time with the "Old Surrey and Burstow and West Kent Foxhounds". Attention by hunt-saboteurs coupled with the threat of a parliamentary bill to ban their sport left the huntsmen doubting their future. Hunting was banned in England shortly after this picture was taken.

During an anti-globalisation demonstration in Prague, a group of right wing protesters, gathered claiming to support the aims of the central protest. The other protesters disagreed and these members of the far-right had to be held behind a fence and given police protection. I photographed this man as people jeered and shouted and police dogs strained at the leash next to him. The backdrop was not as calm as it looks.

The World Bank and the IMF chose the city of Prague for their annual general meeting in September 2000, a global protest was called, vowing to 'shut the meeting down. This they did, the last round of talks was cancelled with the city shrouded in tear-gas. This was one of a string of anti-globalisation protests starting in Seattle, that  threw the spotlight on what protestors saw as a growing miss-use of corporate and economic power.

They erected and climbed tripods to prevent police from moving them and put up a marquee a alongside a banner reading ‘No New Coal’. Kingsnorth became a focus for environmental groups after it was earmarked for expansion, it came to symbolise Britain's reliance on coal for electricity generation, in the face of climate change.

In a crane high above the construction of Olkiluoto nuclear power plant in western Finland, two young activists continue their six-day occupation. I took this picture of Sini and Tuomas, both in their early twenties, as they mounted their protest at the top of the tallest crane in Europe. In their statement they held that technical problems which had beset the project, amidst secrecy by the builders, proved that this kind of reactor was unsafe for Finland and Europe. Olkiluoto is an island located in western Finland in the municipality of Eurajoki, and the site of one of Finland's two nuclear power plants, the other being the two-unit VVER plant at Loviisa.The Olkiluoto plant consists of two BWRs each of 840MWe. Unit three, the first EPR (European Pressurized Reactor) is under construction.

In 1953, Inoqusiaq Piloq was 19 and newly wed, when the priest who had performed her marriage, translated the news from the Danish authorities: the village had to move further north to make way for an American miltary base. Part of the then cold war early warning system (now known as Star Wars) was built on her old village at Thule on West Greenland. I photographed her at the village she was relocated to at Qaanaaq.
