Bemmie IV (Bedminster Parade, East Street, Bristol)

The more time I spend photographing this area the more I become part of the street furniture. It seems that my presence is accepted and I am gaining access to more places then before.

As Bristol City Council is redesigning the social landscape of this traditionally working class area by building many new luxury flats in its heart I will be very busy documenting all the changes during the next couple of years. To support some of the expenses of this photography work I will be starting a crowd funding campaign in the beginning of next year. I will be posting more details and information after the festivities. Until then here is a selection of images I took at the end of summer and during the autumn.

Bedmo III (Bedminster Parade, East Street, Bristol)

I am fortunate to be able to spend more time on this project I have been getting to know people by name and learning their interesting life stories. 

Bedminster Parade is my local high street unfortunately its residents are often overlooked and misrepresented. I hope that my project will be able to go beyond the surface and show the friendly and colourful side of this unique community.
