here to stay
First commissioned in March 2017 to be exhibited in Sandwell in October, ‘Here To Stay‘ launched on Brick Lane when it was still a work in progress at the beginning of August 2017.
After being warmly received to an audience of hundreds, the portraits toured back to Birmingham for two weeks in September.
I intend to tour the portrait series with support from likeminded organisations and sponsors: www.crowdfunder.co.uk/heretostay70 - ends 7th of November.
'West Indies to West Midlands' (October 2013 – January 2015)
The beginnings of my work with the Windrush Generation: a documentary portraiture series of West Indian war veterans who fought for the British military and now reside across north Birmingham. The public exhibition was comprised of contemporary portraits juxtaposed with the veteran's own archival photographs.
