Photography that tells a story

The lens directed at the Calypso singer,

Aldwin Roberts for a brighter future.

It was 1948, and the Empire Windrush docked

with many thinking of going back to the armed forces

shocked at a reception that brought many to re-focus 

in due course, living in different circumstances

where skies were gray and the mood sombre

yet many still came in large numbers

to fill jobs where some were vacant

so gradually becoming noticed for being 

hardworking and pleasant.

'London is the Place for Me'* a song that

resonates still in today's climate.

Where we are facing changes so variant.

Let us sing and appreciate the talent,

we see in all cultures to surpass those

whose outlook is less than benevolent.

Life changes all the time so there is less room

for arrogance,

but more for cultural diversity in all its magnificence.

 *written and sung by the Calypso singer, Aldwin Roberts (also known as Lord Kitchener)

A young photographer, Aiden Harmitt-Williams, whose photography is outstanding, was given the honour to exhibit the display for Bristol Museum & Art Gallery display for St Paul's Carnival
