In the age of social media, who are the people still climbing onto stepladders or upturned milk crates to voice their opinion to an often tiny audience? Do the speakers really want to change the world or do they just like the sound of their own voices? Who are the regulars that attend every Sunday, whatever the weather? And the nutcases – are they genuinely mad or do they just act their part in this weekly spectacle?
Jan Enkelmann’s photographs, taken over a period of six years, capture the spirit and the passion of the people gathering at this unique London institution. Interviews with five long-standing speakers reveal why Speakers’ Corner might be more relevant today than it has been for decades.
