Gary Austin has specialised in documentary photography for more than 25 years covering social issues. He primarily photographs the human condition and reportage for a photo library while creating a historical archive of British life and its struggles. Working independently, as opposed to working to commissions, he prefers to photograph his version of the story and state his photographic voice along with his narrative of events.

Much of his work centres on the progressively visible big brother dominance that the state exerts over our lives. Social conflict, racism, policing, homelessness, drugs, consumerism, poverty, social expulsion and defence of the environment are documented, often through fine art and reportage coverage of protests.

Gary is currently working on political art subjects such as landscapes, urban decay, surveillance and travel on public transport. He exhibits his work in galleries and on-line and also teaches art and documentary photography in workshop format to the general public and communities.

Gary is based in the East Midlands, Derbyshire, UK

UK.Gov passes Instagram Act: All your pics belong to everyone now

“you’ll probably want to read this, because the rules on who can exploit your work have now changed radically, overnight.

Amateur and professional illustrators and photographers alike will find themselves ensnared by the changes, the result of lobbying by Silicon Valley and radical bureaucrats and academics. The changes are enacted in the sprawling Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act which received Royal Assent last week, and it marks a huge shift in power away from citizens and towards large US corporations."
UK.Gov passes Instagram Act: All your pics belong to everyone now

So what’s the answer to this?

I guess making big ugly watermarks all over your photos is the obvious and safe option
