Profile of Attorney/Photographer Geoffrey King

Hidden in Plain Sight: Media Workers for Social Change, Chapter 9
Geoffrey King is the subject of this ninth chapter of “Media Workers for Social Change,” a series of profiles with photographs by Peter M. King went to community college, then to Berkeley, and then to Stanford Law School. He is now a public interest attorney serving the community of media workers. He is also a self-taught professional photographer of social protest. He talks about his work in representing a wronged Indybay reporter, and a night he spent photographing an Oscar Grant demonstration.

“Geoffrey King’s only formal education in photography was a photo unit in a vocational class in crime scene investigation he took in community college. ‘We had to get a picture of something blurry with a slow shutter speed,’ King said. Going out with his camera, he saw a campus policewoman about to pull away in a patrol car, approached her, explained his assignment, and asked if he could take a photo of her in motion. ‘No,’ she said. ‘Do I have a right to?’ King asked. ‘You don’t have any rights when it comes to taking pictures of me!’ she responded.”
