FREE PARTY / RAVE
'Rave' parties are similar to free festivals. This scene grew dramatically with the Castlemorton Common event attracting 25-30,000. The free festival scene began to merge with the rave & free party scene producing new dynamism.

“The patient told medics he "slipped and fell" onto the projectile.”
I started taking pictures at the end of the 70's. I wanted to communicate something of what it was like to be a young rootless "Traveller". Because I was one. examples provided by gypsies here and in Europe; to nomadic people across the world.
Govt excluding debate on new anti protest laws. Introduced 18 pages of new law, after Commons stages and second reading in Lords complete. Whole Lords committee stage debate on new clauses crammed into one late night. Commons excluded, Lords marginalised, Parl neutralised.

Repeated attempts by the govt to stifle peaceful assembly are concerning. New proposals target crucial tools used for protests & propose up to 51 weeks of jail time.
I introduce you to a variety of events. I am interested in festivals, music, community and multi-cultural events. #festival # music #events #nottingham
The case for building a road tunnel near Stonehenge is to be re-examined despite a judge overturning planning permission for it last year.

Photographer Stories That Need to Be Recorded for History https://unitednationsofphotography.com/2021/11/20/photographer-stories-that-need-to-be-recorded-for-history/ via @unofphoto
I am a photographer with a special interest to document the lives of travelling people and those attending Festivals, Stonehenge etc, what the press often describe as ‘New Age Travellers’ and many social concerns.
With my photography, I have tried to say something of the wide variety of people engaged in ‘Alternatives’, and youths’ many sub-cultures and to present a more positive view.
I have photographed many free and commercial events and have, in recent years, extended my work to include dance parties (’rave culture’), gay-rights events, environmental direct actions, and protest against the Criminal Justice Act and more recently, issues surrounding the Global Capitalism.
Further, police surveillance has recently become a very important subject for me!
In recognition of this work, received a ‘Winston’ from Privacy International, at the 1998 ‘Big Brother’ Awards. The citation reads: “Alan Lodge is a photographer who has spent more than a decade raising awareness of front-line police surveillance activities, particularly the endemic practice of photographing demonstrators and activists”.
I am based in Nottingham, UK.
“Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’ But, conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.
In Switzerland they had brotherly love – they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock!!”
Harry Lime [Orsen Wells] The Third Man 1949
“Civilization will not attain to its perfection, until the last stone from the last church, falls on the last priest.”
“….I have an important message to deliver to all the cute people all over the world.
If you’re out there and you’re not cute, maybe you’re beautiful, I just want to tell you somethin’- there’s more of us ugly mother-fuckers than you are, hey-y, so watch out now…”
