Arts & Theatre Photography-The Birmingham Weekender
News from Birmingham based freelance photographer Simon Hadley.
Flashback to sunnier (and hotter) days a couple of weeks ago when I was shooting some preview images for the Birmingham Weekender. The free arts festival returns to the streets of Birmingham later this summer after missing a year due to the pandemic.
At midday in 30 degree temperatures the performers from the Johnny Autin Dance Theatre heroically manoeuvred EKO the giant puppet from their ‘Out of the Deep Blue’ performance around the Bullring Bull in Birmingham City Centre.
Despite the roasting conditions it really was great to be back photographing a real live arts performance.
The Birmingham Weekender Festival takes place between Friday 27 and Sunday 29 August, I will be providing photographic coverage over all three days.
