North London's angry & witty protest stickers: a gallery of lamp-post art
I've been out photographing the street art of my North London neighbourhood again. This time, it's the wide range of angry, witty and often very creative protest stickers adorning every lamp-post and traffic sign round here. Targets of the 50+ stickers in my online gallery include climate change, male violence, NHS austerity, Brexit and increased police powers. Others I've chosen aren't protest stickers at all, but earn a place anyway simply because they made me laugh.

This is the third London Street Art gallery I've posted in the past couple of years. The previous two covered BLM art and pandemic art respectively.

I think of these little camera safaris as the city equivalent of a nature diary, noting the small details and seasonal changes that catch my eye on each daily walk. It adds a whole new level of interest to what would otherwise have become some very over-familiar and boring routes by now. I'd be fascinated to see what a similar approach can turn up in other Mefites' home towns.
