Moment in time photography. John Duder lent me Harold Evans's book on photo journalism last year. This ticks his wish list for what a news photo has to do - it's dynamic, it tells the story, and there's the contrast in body language with the arrestee bowed and anonymous. The great man would approve.

May I refer you to page 103 of Pictures on a Page?

Hoping that in your edition it's the same photo of a prisoner being escorted.

I may have to copy the page to email it to Moira.

And I remember who recommended the book to me in the first place...

That was the end of 4 hours waiting for something to happen. I missed the first fail to stop car chase.
