Caribbean Carnival 2019

One of the city’s most popular events, the Caribbean Carnival attracts thousands of people who gather to watch the parade through the city.

The Carnival’s theme this year was Windrush, celebrating Caribbean migrants’ contribution to the economic and cultural development of the United Kingdom.

Capturing the energy and vibrance of the carnival is any photographer’s dream. Beautiful people all shapes and sizes bringing the streets alive with colour. We live in a body conscious world, social media unfortunately contributes to anxiety and depression as many people feel they cannot live up to what they think they should be. The Caribbean Carnival helps to put life into perspective, that we should celebrate our bodies each and every day. We should say ‘hey I am alive, I have this day to make a difference’.
