Above: Each year we stage a photo treasure hunt for our freshers in which they have to create images in response to a list of directions and actions. These are some of our favourites from yesterday’s adventure.
“The Rockers series is a body of work aiming to portray the personalities of Rockers. The group in this series are usually known as the ‘Scrumpies Lot’. Scrumpies was one of the few 80’s rock and heavy metal night clubs in Leeds that would bring rockers from across the city together for a night of music, mayhem and madness. The Scrumpies lot would set themselves aside from the generic stereotype that surrounded the perception of a rocker and formed a tight knit community that even today, they call their family.”
“This work was created at an event with live music and lots of alcohol that I organised, where they could meet and relive their days at Scrumpies.”
Various images and portraits from Summer in the City
“Over the summer I’ve experimented within my area of specialisation, producing images of subcultures, including the image above of Official Goose dressed as a blue troll for Newcastle Pride Festival. I’ve also experimented in concert photography, photographing singers Alessia Cara and Sabrina Carpenter at the Calgary Stampede (Left) in July as well as YouTuber Emma Blackery, performing onstage at Summer in the City in London (Right), where I was a press photographer for the weekend.”
