Fridays are for readers: Bristol Riots

It’s the weekend again and this week we would like to suggest you a photographic book, but a very special one: Bristol Riots.

New technologies and the Internet have changed and are still changing our lives, and the way we see and interpret the world around us. They have also changed journalism and photojournalism.

This book is a collection of photos taken during the Stroke Croft riots that broke out in the spring of 2011, and that the use of social networks quickly spread the news so that both amateur and professional photographers were alerted to the disturbances. Our friend and great photographer Jonathan Taphouse was there to document it all, and here in this book are his shots (front cover too!).

The photography was collected and edited by University of the West of England academics Louis Rice, Jason Davies and Mark Cains.
