Leicester Mercury

Banging the drum for good photgraphy

OVER the past couple of weeks, the Mercury has featured some of the images from the Leicester Forest Photograph­ic Society’s exhibition, which this year is being held online due to Covid-19 restrictio­ns.

Today, we take a look at the work of Jim Monk.

The LED Drummers were photograph­ed at the Light Up Leicester festival in March, just before the country went into lockdown.

Jim said: “In order to capture the drama, the image was taken kneeling down, while the drummers were moving slowly forwards.

“My main focus is on travel and landscape photograph­y, both in the UK and abroad.

“I also enjoy attending a wide variety of events and festivals, and always have my camera with me ready to capture the action.
