Photographer survives in London by capturing 100 musicians and living off whatever they can pay him

Could you survive living in London on just £100 in six months? That's the challenge Sheffield photographer and music presenter CK Goldiing set himself when he moved to the capital in July with just a little money, a bag of clothes and his trusty camera. But he obviously needed to earn some cash along the way, which is why he launched the #100Musicians challenge – providing 100 unsigned musicians with stunning new press photographs for their promotional efforts in exchange for whatever donations they could afford – thus being able to pay for his accommodation, food, water and transport.

Six months later, and he's still going strong – and he's attracted plenty of TV, radio and online press coverage, along with a growing fanbase via Twitter and Facebook. He has shot 82 unsigned artists so far – some of which we've shared with you now, including Molly & Ellie, Clara Bond and Joelle Brown.
