This week marks the half way point in my street photography journal project this year which goes under the title of “This Week in Street”. Every week for the last 6 months I have endeavoured to get out on the streets of Birmingham as much as possible to try to capture everyday life in the city on a weekly basis. The start of this project also marked a return to colour photography for me, after a year of focusing on content and composition by limiting myself to black and white photography only. Throughout the course of the first 6 months of this project I have further developed my tastes in relation to the particular the kind of light I like to shoot in, how colours play together in my images, and the kind of content I look for. It has been hard to stay focussed on the project with commercial work taking a lot of my time, my current solo exhibition with The REP - PRODUCTION - also taking a lot of time, and of course the unpredictability of weather in the UK. However, despite the challenges for the first 6 months of the project I have managed to build a good collection of images that have a consistent feel and look to them. Below are 26 of my favourite images from the first 6 months of the project.
Thank you for supporting me in this endeavour over the last 6 months!
