FREEDOM FESTIVAL 2017

I KNOW I KNOW WHAT FREEDOM FESTIVAL OF 2017? THAT WAS AGES AGO….

I HAVE DECIDED TO LET THE SUMMER GO AND CONSIDER THIS AS MY GOODBYE. I HAVE NOT POSTED THE PHOTOS FROM FREEDOM FESTIVAL’S 10th ANNIVERSARY, BECAUSE OF MANY REASONS, BUT ALSO TO HAVE THAT FEELING THAT I AM STILL IN LATE AUGUST, EARLY SEPTEMBER. BUT THE WEATHER OUTSIDE SCREAMS WINTER, CHRISTMAS AND SO ON….

 

THESE ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF FREEDOM FESTIVAL 2017 – SECOND YEAR RUNNING FREEDOM FESTIVAL ASKED ME TO BE ONE OF THEIR PHOTOGRAPHERS, SUCH AN HONOUR +LOOKING BACK IT WAS SPECTACULAR. TRUE CELEBRATION OF ART, CULTURE, MUSIC, PEOPLE AND HULL.

WHAT WAS YOUR HIGHLIGHT?

MY CITY OF CULTURE – MY HULL – WEEK 41

HAPPY CULTURE WEEK 41

Week 41 – oh mighty cow – has been culture overload with highlights, lowlights and random discoveries. Last week was probably one of the most cultural in terms of variety. So the usual writing and reflecting is a danger to turn this photo based blog into a book.
Therefore sweet and short <3

Most of the weeks wonders are spontaneously found on the route that was planned ahead. Turner Prize at Ferens Art Gallery is the only culture visit I properly predicted to appear on this weeks photo challenge.

On Monday I visited HSAD and Brodrick Gallery that currently is hosting an exhibition for architecture. What a lovely place, with sweet memories and appreciativeness.

_Z1A9776WEEK41 b

It is hard to see the space as an exhibition space, it is more about learning of being an artist exhibiting in whatever way is your way. The space is surrounded by that feeling of first steps and unless spectacular exhibition held, I am not feeling it.

_Z1A9785WEEK41 b_Z1A9782WEEK41 b

Same day the route home involved passing POST OFFICE and I found the treasures of Freedom Festival 2017 [which by the way will be on the blog at some point, just because it is over a month ago since it took place].

NOTE TO THE LAST IMAGE: First thing I asked the van driver was if he’s sober. Because his eyes, body language stated otherwise. He confirmed that he is sober.
Overall, what an experience walking through Hull Fair 2017 when everyone is starting to wake up.
There is a life behind the rides, a family business, a family. Walk through the West Park with all the mobile homes parked closely to each other is something to experience.

In between I went down to the HULL 17 POD to have a chat with the volunteers [as you do] and soak up more info, make sure I am on track with the culture and of course aware of upcoming wonderful things.

On Sunday I visited the TURNER PRIZE for the second time. And there will be a third time for definite. It feels like the exhibition and the honours of having it in Hull is worth three trips and actually a necessity.

First time round I was focused on people engaging with the art, which is the fun part, but I felt the need to see it with my own naked eyes. Second time I was getting involved and got to know the artists via videos. Third time will be for the films and last questions.

 

THIS WAS THE FULL STOP FOR THE WEEK. BUT THEN SOMETHING HAPPENED.

The following story is true and quite sad. Thursday night around 6:20 PM whilst at work duties I accidentally opened INSTAGRAM and a fellow photographer was sharing a love story between him and world famous, admired MARTIN PARR [AHA, YES MARTIN PARR HIMSELF AT THE HUMBER STREET GALLERY]. MY HEART STOPPED FOR A FEW SECONDS. AND THEN IT CLICKED – HIS SERIES PORTRAIT OF A CITY THAT I CLEARLY KNEW ABOUT HAVE BEEN EXHIBITED AND HE IS AT THE OPENING NIGHT. AND I WAS CRYING INSIDE OUT.
_Z1A0073WEEK41 b

LONG STORY SHORT – I FUCKED UP. The thought that I could’ve seen him in person, shook his hand and told him he has shaped my photographers being and that I am grateful for his work and its existence. Plus other million compliments, few sick belly butterflies and the beautiful photographs he has taken in Hull.
I am a believer that things happen for a reason, but this one is just stupid and I can’t see a reason. By the time I arrived, he was gone. GONE.

_Z1A0063WEEK41 b_Z1A0065WEEK41 b_Z1A0067WEEK41 b_Z1A0070WEEK41 b

Every single photograph is the beauty of Martin Parr and his talent, he’s undeniable style of capturing stills that are more alive than a breathing human being. Thank you for coming to Hull, the Hull is now on the Martin Parr’s map and I hope there will be a book.

The exhibition is strongly suggestive, I will definitely be going back again and again.

P.S. The other w/f photographer Olivia Arthur is part of it too, just haven’t seen that yet.

SULKING AND WONDERING HOW MY LIFE HAS GOT SO SAD, I wandered to the THE SIXTEEN THOUSAND at the C4DI BLOCK C
