The Notting Hill Carnival is a traditional street festival that takes place on the streets of Notting Hill area in London. This is known as a celebration of the Black British Culture with strong Caribbean influence. It attracts millions of participants every year during the August Bank Holiday.
Street photography by Alessandro Filizzola (Notting Hill, London, 2016-2017)
Far away from the mushy love story lived in a bookstore on that movie from the late nineties, during this August carnival season, the streets of Notting Hill are turned into a loudly crowd populated by exotic and eccentric characters. Dispite the name, it is not to be mistaken as the Brazilian Carnival with happens in February. Yes, you will find some shy samba school exhibitions and thousands of people following the parade. However, the omnipresent smell of jerked chicken barbecue in the air will remind you that you are not in Rio and that this British-Caribbean festival is something else. So, undress your soul of any pre concept or prejudice that you might have, get a drink, have a patty, mingle and indulge yourself in Notting Hill Carnival!
I am feeling very proud of being elected as the winner on the Photography category on the Press Award UK 2017.
I was nominated as one of the outstanding Brazilian photographers in London who, among the other highlighted artists, has featured his contribution to promote the Brazilian Culture as well as a positive image of both Brazil and Brazilians and their activities overseas.
My many thanks to the board for this award and for all that honored me with their vote and support through the whole fases of the award. The first fase was being nominated by one member of the special jury; the second fase was by popular election and the 3 finalists for each category went to the selection by the technical jury.
