Earlier work covering the free festivals and those from a traveller background. Living in old busses, trucks and caravans, driving around the country on ‘the circuit’ with family and friends. Since the late 1970’s have been photographing events and the people around I found interesting. Dealing with aspects of ‘alternative’ lifestyles and sub-cultures. From photographing many free and commercial events the project grew to encompass ‘free party’ events (‘rave culture’), environment protest, land rights with surrounding social concerns. Always aiming to present a more positive view of people and communities that are so frequently misrepresented.
This set presented in submission for an MA degree in Photography at Nottingham Trent University where I specialised in issues surrounding representation.
