Nominee

"Street Performer"
The Edinburgh Festival offers so many options of entertainment that it is easy to miss on things that happen on the side. This street performer caught my eye because we don't expect to see a ballet performance on the street. I used Ilford film and was trying to achieve a grainy result which I did.

Biography: Interested in photography since childhood. Later, when living in Paris, I studied photography at Center Jean Verdier and won a studio assistant placement at Elle magazine studios. After that I went into comercial photography and kept working on personal projects. Developing Fibromyalgia after 2012 restricted me greatly and unable to carry my professional equipment I put photography on hold. Still wanting to capture images I often used my phone for that in spite of its limitations. Now I use a light weight digital camera and my film cameras for special projects. I also teach photography.
