"These photographs were taken at the Caribbean carnival in Notting Hill, between 2009 and 2012. A place where the culture is very much felt and music is the absolute protagonist. Caribbean rhythms, ska, reggae, dub are just some of the genres heard in the UK, and more specifically at the carnival. I took the photos before the sound systems began to pump music: the calm before the storm. A couple of hours later and the atmosphere would have been totally different and thousands of people would be huddled under these sound totems, symbolising the street culture linked to the carnival."
