During the Year 12 visit to Portcullis House yesterday, we noticed a series of photographs taken by Simon Roberts, the "official photographer" of the election. He travelled round the country photographing as many different candidates and consitutencies as possible. Often he has stood back from his subjects, capturing the scene and interesting background details. The photograph above, for example, of Gordon Brown in Rochdale, includes a few workers felling trees in the background while the Prime Minister makes his statement to the press. You can see more at Roberts' website and in this BBC slideshow. Roberts also asked the public to submit their own photos of the campaign, and you can see these here.
Portcullis House, like many other public buildings, will be open to the public on 18-19 September as part of the Open House Weekend (free admission!).
