‘Gettin up on the Down Low’

Open

'Gettin up on the Down Low'  2005. Notting Hill Carnival

Notting hill (working title) started 6yrs ago my only intention was to make pictures. For the first 2 years I shot B+W, 3rd year I changed to color and gave myself a one word theme for that particular year portraits, dancers, etc giving myself this short brief turned the 2 day event into a whirlwind as I wanted to fulfill what I set out to do. Almost all the pictures are people oriented and because of how frantic the carnival is everything is one shot only. I only wish carnival was more than 2 days per year.
