Sit-In: Guildford School of Art 1968 by John Walmsley
The work of British documentary photographer John Walmsley is a testament to the reactionary year of 1968. As a student at the then Guildford School of Art, Walmsley documented the student-led sit-in, which lasted from the 5th of June to the 29th of July – making it the longest ever at a UK establishment.

Café Royal Books is a publisher of limited edition photographic titles focusing on British documentary photography. Founded by Craig Anderson the aim is to create a focussed and complete archive of British documentary photography.
The publications affordable, democratic, utilitarian and useful, without fuss or decoration. The images, history and the cultural archive are the focus. Helped by, but not overwhelmed by the design. We like Craigs’ work in bringing this collection together and offer a selection of titles here that are a picture record of British culture.
