Brighton Fringe Festival 2017 – over a month of amazing arts and culture live across the city – finished just a week ago.
This year’s festival was the largest in it’s history with 970 events showing in 155 venues. These included dance shows, stand-up comedy, music, magicians, and a whole host of artists and performers.
As an accredited Fringe photographer, it was the perfect opportunity to honour performers and acts by creating a sequence of photographic portraits.
The idea was to create images made away from the direct glare of performances themselves. In this way I hoped to capture something more than just production shots.
Some of the results are shown here in this gallery. These are artists from Holland playing in the Dutch Season showing the best of the Amsterdam Fringe, as well as some winners of Fringe bursaries that support artists in Brighton & Hove to make their work a reality.
