The Art of Spectating – PX3 bronze medal

The ‘Art of Spectating’ is my first self-published photography book which explores the connection between the exhibited works and the visitors. The photos included are taken in various art museums in London and abroad, between 2013 and 2020.

The book foreword is written by art historian and museum expert Tamara Ognjević.

The book proposal has been awarded a bronze medal at the prestigious Prix de la Photographie annual competition (PX3) in the category book/people.

The London Notting Hill Carnival is one of the largest street party in Europe and it is a significant event in the Caribbean culture. It attracts around two and a half million people annually every year on the last weekend of August. In 2020 the event was cancelled for the first time since 1966 because of the pandemic. This shot was taken on the same day and time of the parade.

THE NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL 2019

It has been the hottest Carnival ever, with temperatures above 30 degree.
More than just a street party, the Carnival was first held in 1959 in response to a series of racist attacks and rioting that spread in west London. The Carnival was put together to celebrate of the local community, people from the Caribbean coming to London in search of opportunities.
 
As always, there is a lot of fun, great energy and positive vibes, music and street food, beautiful costumes and dance from the London samba schools.

Once again, a great job from the Notting Hill Carnival organisers. https://www.facebook.com/NHCarnivalLDN/
