I was lucky enough to be accepted into the Fargo Village family in Coventry where i was able to put up an exhibition of my existing work! Very exciting! Also it was a lot of hard work! but it was definitely worth it, so i have been spending a lot of my spare time there over the last two months and the shop owners and residents are all fantastic! and are all in the same position as i am … just starting out so i have decided to document these amazing people in a very fun way! And luckily enough every single one of them is on board for the photos!! They love the idea and they are all massively supportive!!! I have never been around so many encouraging and lovely people in one place!!! So between 7th – 10th May i will be spending the weekend doing my shoots with the girls and guys there and then spending my evenings getting them edited ready for printing!! All alongside my written work to support it!!
I went on a location trip to Birmingham and part of the task was to find this to take photos of that were red as the task was all about RGB. I managed to find a lot of things to photograph,
i started at Birmingham rag market, which was quite easy to find things there, unfortunately i did have a small issue of one of the ladies running a stall was quite angry that myself and my friend were taking images near her stall so we apologised and moved along, no one else had a problem and greeted us kindly.
Once i had done this i visited the new Birmingham library and there was a few photography exhibitions there one of which was outside, it was very interesting, (see images) also inside the library there was an exhibiton by Stephen Whipps, which was about the changes that happened whilst the library was being knocked down and rebuilt.
