Photo detail

In this photo taken Monday, July 16, 2012, a t-shirt depicting a rioter holding an Olympic ring is displayed on sale in a London market. The guardians of the games are vigilant about protecting the integrity - and the commercial clout - of the Olympic brand. But even they can't stop the irreverent spirit of artists and craftspeople, who have responded to the games with a cheeky mix of celebration, skepticism and satire.
