More about Shaun:

Shaun Bloodworth is a photographer living and working from Sheffield. He has taken an avid interest in the underground electronic music scene, documenting key players, collectives and musicians within the scenes from around the world.

Shaun has been in the Northern General Hospital for 4 months now, waiting for a liver transplant. He's also suffered an infection that led to him having his lower leg amputated. His transplant is now imminent, but it’s becoming critical that he receives a new liver soon.

Shaun is also self-employed, so this enforced and lengthy stay in hospital, and subsequent rehabilitation, is making a bad situation even worse. Rave For Shaun is a chance for his friends to create something positive for Shaun and his family at this awful time.
