In 2009, the G20 group of nations met in the UK.
In response, groups of anti-capitalists and anarchists demonstrated in central London. The demonstration spiralled out of control; an unarmed bystander was killed by police.
Billy Macrae was present, and documented the behaviour of both police and demonstrators.
Five years later, with the UK economy emerging from the financial crisis, he returned to the scene to re-photograph his original images in the same spots that they originally occurred.
Ongoing project exploring the relationship between young men and amateur sport in contemporary British society.
My interest here is in the state of masculinity in this country today. In a post-tribal society, which situations remain that allow young men to 'come of age?'
Is the rite-of passage something we need any more? And how do women fit into this equation? These are the kinds of things being considered here.
Locations include Bristol, Hampshire, Leeds, London, Liverpool, Scotland, Cardiff, and several more. This project is ongoing.
Collected street photo series from around the world.

Images from my ongoing study of the British cage-fighting (MMA) scene.
I've been shooting this work for several years, in various locations including London, Bristol, Leeds, Trowbridge, etc.
This project has also been made into a short film, which will be available to watch on this site soon. Watch this space.
An experimental documentary project using time as the central ingredient.
This consisted of a four-hour walk from Brixton in South London, through the centre of the capital, to Islington in North London. The date was Saturday 8th September 2012.
As I walked I carried a clock. Each person I passed was asked if they would like to feature in my work, holding the clock to place them within the series. Some people said 'no', but most said 'yes'.
This is the result.
