Environmental Photographer of The Year

Aloha From Blackpool By Yannick Dixon

In July, I submitted a series of photographs into this years CIWEM Environmental Photographer of The Year Competition.

This international photography competition seeks to “honour photographers who use their ability to raise awareness of environmental and social issues”.

Today I was contacted by the judges who said that my submission had been successful and that they would like to include my photograph Aloha From Blackpool in the exhibition, which is great news.

The Living Statue

Living Statue In Blackpool

Walk along the promenade near Blackpool’s Central Pier and you’re likely to encounter a living statue, one of a number of street performers providing light entertainment for the tourists.

Blackpool is synonymous with providing popular entertainment for the masses, but I want to explore what is available on street level (there is more to the town’s ‘pleasure identity’ than The Pleasure Beach and Blackpool Tower).

This location around Central Pier is a popular hot spot for local street vendors, performers and beggars as there are usually many passers-by along the promenade.
