Elvis Festival – Part 2

From Humble Beginnings

The Elvis festival began in 2004 from fairly small beginnings but is now it’s one of the largest in the world attracting Elvis’s from all over the globe.┬áIt has become something of an essential player in the local economy as well, worth close to seven million pounds but remains a tad surreal when you find yourself listening to a pretty good Elvis playing in a fish and chip shop!

As in the previous post the images here have been shot in a fairly traditional documentary style. It’s a passive approach to documenting an event, moving around and through it constantly looking, anticipating, framing.

  1. Surreal ! The last one’s a classic , have you noticed the Elvis in the window has a tree for hair,
    the third one has a sense of life passing them by.
