Jerusalem in a Green and Pleasant Land – rebuilt and not a pretty sight!


This is one of the least offensive of a series of photographs of ‘revellers’ on a Saturday night in Cardiff. The pictures, taken by 34-year-old Polish photographer Maciej Dakowicz, accompanied an article on binge drinking in Britain’s Mail Online. The article was headed “Captured on our streets by a foreign lens, shaming images that turned Britain into a laughing stock”. As I looked at the photographs I wondered whether “a foreign lens” might capture the same or similar images in this country as we celebrate the Rugby World Cup. Or at any other time. I’m grateful to my old friend Ivan Strahan for sending me the link. Let me know what you think.
