The general election of May 2005 was one of the most stage managed, spin driven and least visually interesting elections in modern times. Press photographers faced a month of ten minute photocalls and long frustrating waits whilst trying to find interesting and journalistically significant images. The British Press Photographers’ Association decided to put a web gallery together to show the world that good pictures were taken.
A 40 image edit of the project called “Never Mind The Ballots” was shown on board the SS Robin in Docklands during October 2005. You can see the original web gallery HERE
