We’re big fans of Wally Cassidy’s photography, and have shared some of his brilliant shots from the 1980s both here and on our Facebook page. From youth subcultures to great moments of protest and rage, Wally captured some real gems in black and white. There is something about the medium of black and white with photography, it remains timeless. Yesterday, Wally took a series of brilliant photographs at the Anti-Austerity demonstration, and has allowed me to share a few here.
On the march itself, to me it felt a bit like going through the motions. The hostility towards the overpaid union top-brass was totally unsurprising, and Jack O’Connor’s absence from the speakers list notable. I don’t blame him!
You can see some of Wally’s classic images, and some more recent shots, over here on his Facebook page.
