This series follows the Somerset Carnival circuit, aka ‘The Wessex Grand Prix,’ one of the oldest traditional lit processions and considered the largest in the world. It is an impressive spectacle of ritual and performance, yet largely unknown outside of the region.
The participants of these carnivals have been involved for many years, sometimes over many generations of the same family, committing through time and financial investment, forming close community bonds.
This work is part of an ongoing series looking at community, called ‘Joiners’ (working title).
