Shot on a canon DSLR using a mix of stop and photo motion techniques. I wanted to capture the whole Carnival and not just the performers.

 

The biggest street party in europe takes place in London at the end of August every year.

 

Hundreds of thousands of revellers party on the streets of west London

 

Held each August Bank Holiday since 1966, the Notting Hill Carnival is the largest festival celebration of its kind in Europe. Every year the streets of West London come alive, with the sounds and smells of Europes biggest street festival. Twenty miles of vibrant colourful costumes surround over 40 static sound systems, hundreds of Caribbean food stalls, over 40,000 volunteers and over 1 million Notting Hill carnival revellers.
