Busking trying to climb the Ladder Images Shane Aurousseau

There is so much young talent playing the streets and the clubs of major cities I thought it is worth producing a photographic repotage of what it feels like to be a busker an entertainer. This reportage will up date from time to time.

Diversity a Black and White World and some Colour

Photography is about telling the story and impact. The clerical image above the finger pointing down seems to be saying staying stay down there a funereal reference or to the devil. The red cassock or soutane is correct and dramatic We are are all players to quote Shakespeare “all the world’s a stage” an academic uncle of mine once said “variety is the spice of life

Diversity Just People

For awhile now I have been publishing a series of images ‘Diversity Just People‘  these photos show the diverse nature of all of us who make up the one people who populate this exciting world – our activities, work, fun

and beliefs. In this blog I thought that I would begin to build an omnibus of those images. I hope that over the years to come I can enlarge this project and show some of the differences that make up the whole. Without this variety the world would be a boring place indeed.

Diversity Just people

Street photography or life photography is a way of documenting human life. It’s also a way of showing the diversification of our life on this globe. I hope that I can portray some of this diversification in my image series Diversity. Diversity is all about lifestyle and participation in what interests us, participating in life,the step towards our dreams.

Images of London

Continuing on to the theme Images of London; I am trying to photographically  show the life style associated with this vibrant city of 8 million people. I have included in the images below a selection shot at this year’s Notting Hill Carnival. The carnival takes place in the central London hamlet of Notting Hill. Some one million people join the festivities. The carnival runs over the August bank holiday period on the Sunday and Monday. It is now the largest street carnival in Europe and second only in the world to the famous Rio de Janeiro carnival. It is a celebration that demonstrates the ethnic diversity of this great city. London is a city made up of people from countries across the globe one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world. The city has a heritage of great street art and street performing art. I hope that some of the inspiration living in the city is alive in my images.
