Abe Odedina is an amazing artist and a really lovely human being and I am exited to work on a multimedia profile on him. I am using photos, video and audio together to assemble a profile.
Here are a few photos from his recent exhibition "Eye to Eye" which happen at the Copeland gallery in Peckham and some from the days running up to the show in his studio.

I had a brilliant time taking portraits of young families for St Michael's Fellowship, an NGO that works to support young families in London. And because I really like the resulting portraits I want to share a few with you here.

At the end of 2015 I joined a photographers collective with the interesting idea of documenting the first 24 hours of every New Year.
24 hours. 24 photographers. 24 images. 24 years.
“The intention is to visually record time, taking the viewer on a visual journey through the first day of the New Year hour by hour.” www.24photography.org
Each photographer is allocated a one-hour slot. Every year a different curator selects one image per photographer. The resulting 24 images are exhibited publicly. In previous years the exhibition took place outdoors in Soho Square.
My slot was the last hour on the 1st of January 2016 and I choose to spend it in Central London. My plan was to shoot portraits of passers-by and ask them about their plans for 2016.
It was a very fascinating hour. I had some really interesting and touching interactions with complete strangers. Here are two images from this hour I especially like.
I am very much looking forward to the exhibition and will let you know more about where & when soon.
This is the collective’s 13th year of existence and the website is www.24photography.org if you want to have a look at their previous years.

My favourite photo today.
This choice is definitely influenced by me having had to sit in a darkened room for the least week to grade a short film.

This was one of the craziest and most funny shoots I have ever done. Every year this family creates an elaborate festive scene and send out the photo as their Christmas cards. This year we happen to have dinner with them and this is the result.
