I have entered the Lens Culture Street Photography Awards 2015. I wanted to enter into the portfolio category, not because I thought I had a strong enough set of images to win, but because you get a free review if you enter it. So, I am looking forward to the feedback. I’m sure it will be useful and very valuable. After much agonising I decided to enter two sets of 5 images. Here they are:
Set 1: Entitled OPEN FOR BUSINESS (5 shots) – Georgia
Visiting Georgia was a real surprise for many reasons. Apart from the stunning mountains I most definitely had not expected, I was particularly intrigued by life on the streets and by the number of ways daily commerce took place. This short series is a sample of the various types of shops I came across that were open for business.
Set 2: QUIET SPACES IN PUBLIC PLACES (5 images) – London
Anyone who lives in or has visited London will understand that it is a busy city that is never still, yet within this maelstrom it is possible to find a quiet space, whether alone, with a loved one or simply find quiet in one’s mind. This short series is the start of a larger project to find and document quiet spaces in public places.
Wish me luck!
