Definition: Individuals who busk and work as street entertainers in the city of Bath
Reasons for selecting:Walking through Bath, we have always been greeted by the many different buskers who occupy the city streets. With a wide range of styles and genres, they offer entertainment to those who pass by. We would like to bring together the wide range of buskers and street performers to capture some of the diversity of what is on offer for locals and visitors to the city.
As part of their project ‘Picture in the Paper’, artists LOW PROFILE searched for all of the people in Bath who busk and work as street entertainers in the city, bringing them together to make a professional photographic portrait of as many people in this group as possible.
PHOTO SHOOT DATE: 9th November 2014
TIME: 10:00 – 11:15
LOCATION: BRLSI, 16-18 Queen Square, Bath, BA1 2HN
The buskers portrait was one of 18 group photographs taken in November 2014, before being published in the Bath Chronicle and then put on permanent public display, in the new Centre for the Arts at the University of Bath when it opened in February 2015.
