Photography: Ugandan Protest in Tokyo

I went to Tokyo yesterday to photography a demo against the Ugandan government as part of my Tokyo Documentary Photography Workshop project. One of the subjects I’m shooting for my refugee project took part in the demo. The weather was terrible but that didn’t stop anybody.

昨日Tokyo Documentary Photography Workshopの難民プロジェクトの取材の為東京に行って、反ウガンダ政府デモを撮影しました。名古屋で撮影している難民の方がデモに参加しました。台風でしたが、皆さんが天気を気にせずにデモをしました

Cycled since I was a kid, moved to Japan in 2001, bought my first 'serious' camera in 2005. Spent the later half of the 1990s travelling in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Nepal, Japan, and the Philippines and wish I'd photographed a lot more back then.
