For the Stories – Tales of Gloucester project, I have chosen do to a story about a day in the life of a drag queen. I have picked this topic mainly to bush myself out of my comfort zone and to improve my live shooting and portrait techniques. The picture story will consists of photos of daily life activates, pre-show preparations (make-up and costume), and possibly photos of a drag act.
The second subject that I might do a story about is the Muslim community in Gloucester and the effects of Islamophobia on their lives. I have emailed a couple of different such as Gloucester Faith Forum, GymNation and Friendship Café to help me find two or three muslim brothers/sisters who are fine with being photographed. Only one person has replied to my email recommending to email two people from Friendship Café who have good knowledge of the community and individuals who might want to be involved. Unfortunately, I am still waiting for them to reply to my email.
