BOWIE

08.01.47 - 10.01.16

I LIVE IN BRIXTON, LONDON, AND ON THE NIGHT THAT BOWIE PASSED AWAY, THERE WAS A SPONTANEOUS PUBLIC OUTPOURING OF GRIEF, AND CELEBRATION OF HIS LIFE AS PEOPLE CONGREGATED AROUND THE MURAL CREATED BY AUSTRALIAN STREET ARTIST JAMES COCHRAN IN 2013.

THIS SERIES PRESENTS A CANDID RECOLLECTION OF THAT UNIQUE EVENING CELEBRATING A UNIQUE PERSON AND CULTURAL FIGURE.

 

NEPAL

ON EVERY ASSIGNMENT I TRY TO MAKE TIME FOR OWN SHOTS, TO EXPLORE THE PLACE AS I SEE IT. I WENT TO NEPAL WITH IMPACT MARATHON SERIES AND TOOK A COUPLE OF WEEKS EITHER SIDE TO EXPLORE. 10 YEARS SINCE MY LAST VISIT, i took the time to observe how nepalis live their everyday lives a world apart from mine.
