The Counter-Culture Mixtape

February 07, 2012

I recently visited the end of year show for the Fashion Photography students at the London College of Fashion. Amongst the displays was one by my awesome girlfriend Peta Ridley, titled “The Counter Culture Mixtape”.
It was inspired by the portrait work of Seydou Keita and I had helped out with the shoot at the tail end of last year. We had headed into Camden on several weekends and street-cast some of the interesting characters wandering the area. I was simply being camera assistant (and in charge of looking after “studio” – a bedsheet gaffa-taped to a wall in the street) – Peta did the job finding the models and getting the great pictures.
You can see some of the finished shots here.
