Once again on that photography job hype! Farfetch asked me a long on a day with male bloggers to tour some street art and snap and capture the whole day. As well as snap the bloggers in the pieces they had ordered from Farfetch, I was to just document the whole day and the art and the bloggers and just everything. A great, but tiring, job!
Meeting up outside Shoreditch Grind gave me the perfect opportunity to try some of their coffee finally, but that is a story for another time maybe! We had half an hour before the street art tour guide was due to turn up so we found this amazing feature wall of glass round the corner from the coffee shop and I proceeded to snap each and every blogger in a street style way, and then I focused on the item they had ordered from Farfetch. This was a mix of t-shirts, shoes, jumpers etc
The best item of the day? Somebody had ordered Alexander McQueen platform trainers and they were so beautiful
Our tour guide then turned up. He used to be (still is but not as much) a street artist and took us on a 2 hour tour around Shoreditch. I didn't realise just how rife it was with street art. There was always something to look at! AND even the tiniest thing that you may not notice can be considered street art. You will see what I mean when you look through my images
Massive works of street art were shown as well as teeny tiny pieces. Most of it legal, but some were illegal so ssssssshhh let's keep it a secret. The smallest pieces we saw? Work that looked like dropped chewing gum on the pavement. Yep, something as small as that is street art and you never know when you will come across it!
We also saw Space Invaders work, which again is quite small within buildings and if you don't know where to find it you can miss it completely. Space Invader has an app though to help you find his work and then mark it off I was told! I may have to download it and try and find it all. Like Pokemon, but for street art
Now for the heavy picture content. I really do think pictures speak more words than I can ever type so I am just going to leave you to look and enjoy!
Next time you go to Shoreditch, be sure to keep your eyes open for all the amazing Street Art around. There is a difference between graffiti and street art, so keep that in mind also when you see anything around
