in Bristol or the South West region. It could be anything from a photograph taken of the Bristol Downs at sunset on the way home, to a favourite walk or a weekend activity. I’d also like people to explore themes such as well-being, community and inspiring change; ideas encompassed by the NHS and the city as a whole.” Simon selects just a few of the


photos that have impressed him so far. “Modou Jagne, Cumberland


Basin: it’s quite a challenge to produce a different take on what must be Bristol’s most photographed landmark. However, Modou has managed to create an interesting perspective of the Suspension Bridge, documenting it illuminated at night. “Jeremy Fennell, St. Paul’s


Carnival: Jeremy has captured a compelling photograph of crowds enjoying the Carnival, bathed in a golden evening glow.


Photo tips Simon offers three top tips for taking a great Bristol photo


1


Festivals, fêtes and outdoor events


are always rich sources of inspiration and good for providing colourful scenes and characters.

Don’t be afraid to play with the shutter speed


to create some interesting effects. When taking a night- time shot, use a tripod and try shooting with a longer shutter speed.


When photographing landscapes it really helps to create a sense of depth. Placing an object or person in the foreground helps give a sense of scale and emphasises how far away the distance is.


It’s a kind of ethnographic study of modern Britain with a cast of different characters, fashion styles, displays of nationalism and signage. There is a wealth of narrative details to get lost in. “Brandon Chambers, Gull


Trouble: Brandon’s surreal photo has both tension and humour. The use of bright sunlight to create intense shadows and highlights increases the sense of drama in the image, while the seagull coming in for a bite of a pretzel is somewhat menacing. I love the fact that the man holding the tray seems completely oblivious!” It’s not surprising that Simon


was approached to oversee the project. In 2007/2008, for his book We English, he travelled around the country capturing the nation at play. In 2010, he was chosen by the House of Commons to capture the way the public reacted to the run- up to the general election; The Guardian described the resulting


work as ‘jaw-dropping’. I ask Simon what might most


inspire him about Bristol. “Bristol appears to be a city


with a very unique sense of identity, and this is something I’d like to explore. I’m also interested in looking at issues related to sustainability, given that the city has a long association with the environmental movement and is the only UK city to have been shortlisted for the European Green Capital Award 2015.” We can picture George
