HHCP HULL BIG HANG AND SLEEP OUT.

On Saturday [yes, a week ago, I’ve been  pre-holiday busy] I went down to Queens Gardens to photograph [absorb] the event that Hull Homeless Community Project have organised.

The page on Facebook states: “Join us for a night under the stars in Queens gardens in support of those who have no choice.”

I believer in humanity and was super keen to go and give my kind of support – photograph people and reflect the humanity and diversity. I was not planning to stay for the whole night [make my monies worth by staying in the house that I pay rent for ha], but I thought in couple of hours I could find what I am looking for.

Also a shout-out to my favourite comedians Jack Gleadow and Jed Salisbury who were there to support the cause with the comedy and their presence.
Both of those guys are super awesome and there is not a dull day, if they are around.

In every photo-opportunity I try to find that one special moment, that peak of how wonderful it is to be alive and never the less – different. We are all looking for that extraordinary in ordinary and that for most of the time is my goal.

The photographs are reflecting different people coming together to support those who need help. Homeless doesn’t mean less valuable to the society and humanity, we never know what is the story behind and shouldn’t judge so we need to keep ourselves open-minded and give support.

If honest, even though the attendance and “sleepers” didn’t fill Queens gardens, it was enough to feel the great atmosphere.

And I have come home with beautiful photographs of beautiful people – is there more to ask?

These pictures are taken between 7 -21:30 pm, so reflect only small part of the event and I feel that some images need commentary, so please, enjoy and remember – be kind, helpful and love life.
