The style of photography in this piece will be street photography (mainly portrait photos of buskers and candid of them performing) documentary – pictures of local buskers around Leeds and their instruments/ props
The format will be a long form online piece.
With lockdown being released and the hospitality industry reopening outdoors, the amount of buskers on the streets have increased, keeping diners entertained. I want to capture buskers in action and speak to them about their choice of entertainment and their stories. I will also speak to Leeds city council on the rules and regulations of busking and their thoughts on the city centre since there is more people on the streets.
I will include statistics which have been picked up by street cameras showing the difference of how many people there are now on the street compared to lockdown.
I like this piece as it is people based and usually people you walk past without actually acknowledging. It will be a nice way to promote the musician’s included work.
