Here are the candid Street portraits from the Whitby Goth Fest, which I visited over the weekend of 27-29 October 2017
These acrobats we’re incredible. They were such a pleasure to watch. They gave me the perfect opportunity to practice capturing stillness and movement by changing the shutter speed.
I found this to be amazing and incredibly clever. Four people, four chairs, Four people no chairs.
The Shaolin Monks practice the martial art that is now called Shaolin Kung Fu. They may now perform with the Chinese State Circus, but they are Chan Buddhists and martial arts experts trained in the use of 36 weapons and other fighting techniques. The Shaolin Temple was built in 495AD in the Henan Province China.
Duo Extreme are acrobatic aerial performers who are currently on tour in the UK with the Chinese State Circus. Their act is breath-taking and beautiful, a dance between extreme risk and ballet. Awesome.
Pride is a celebration of diversity and gender in all of its many forms. It’s an opportunity for the LGBTQ community, friends, family and supporters to gather together and be proud of being who we are. Being visible as a community means that equality and diversity can be promoted and homophobia and discrimination can be challenged by presence and a carnival atmosphere.
