New Vibes // Oct 2019 -July 2020

The position of photographer as insider or outsider runs through any discussion around representation and influences much photographic practice.

The intention of this work is to represent a group of DJ’s and photographers who organise and contribute to entertaining multi-media events in and around Coventry. As a photographer, I represent New Vibes DJ Sound System and Visuals as both an insider and outsider.

“I picked up a camera because it was my choice of weapons against what I hated most about the universe: racism, intolerance, poverty.” – Gordon Parks

“The audience as community has come to depend on the performer’s skills, and on the force of a personal style, to articulate it’s common values and interpret its experiences.” – Stuart Hall
