  1. Dave, from Blackburn

    It’s a cold Friday in early January, and I am sat quivering on a steel bench in Preston Station. It’s the first time I’ve been here longer than stopping for fellow travellers to get on and off. The gorgeous taste of the pastry that I just bought is slowly walking away…

  2. A Momentous Occasion!

    Friday, 2nd June and I can feel my hay-fever starting to rear its ugly head. To be fair, it has been well behaved so far this year. I had a small sneezing fit on the train, en route to Vauxhall, but was saved by the single tissue in my back…

  3. A Wembley Affair

    As I begin to write to this, it’s a Saturday evening, and my plans have successfully gone down the drain, like the kale smoothie I tried to make. I’m left doing life admin and have some ironing still left to do. What does my Saturday night life admin have to…

  4. London Youth Awards

    This event was a little special for me. I recently left London Youth to finally commit to photography, and they have been incredibly supportive - they continue to hire me regularly to meet their photography needs! Additionally, when working at London Youth, having an awards ceremony was something that was on the plans, so it’s awesome seeing…

  5. The Protestors

    Yesterday, I was amongst the energy and passion at the “Emergency Protest: Defend EU Citizens’ Right to Remain” Protest, organised by the NUS International Students’ Campaign, The People’s Assembly Against Austerity, and People’s Momentum. I’ve created a short series of portraits which document the diversity of a protest crowd; individuals…

  6. Rocking Ur Teens / Girls Conference

    I left the conference inspired.  It was awesome to see the young ladies come to the event with typical teenage “enthusiasm,” but leave feeling honestly inspired by the incredible speakers. The Rocking Ur Teens team did an amazing job. Here is a visual storyline of the day! Celebrating Youth! Host,…

  7. Event: Tick The Bucket

    On a random Saturday, I was about to go to enjoy an evening of bouldering. Before doing so, I decided to have fun in a ball-pit. Upon entering, I met Oska, the ball-pit warden. We got chatting about the ball-pit, life and other things, little did I know that I…

  8. Try It!

    A few months ago, I met a guy who documented up and coming artists, videoing their performances. The platform is called I AM NEXT January comes, and I hear that he manages to get himself a monthly slot with Birthdays in Dalston, where some of these musicians have a platform…

  9. Creative Opps & My Life My Say: Undivided Brexit

    Walk with me here. It’s 7pm, you’re in Stoke Newington, on a Wednesday night. What do you do? You have post-Brexit conversations with others who are in their 20s and 30s, of course. Right? And to top it off, the setting for this interesting dialogue? The basement of a bar/cafe Last…

  10. Community Links: Red Carpet Awards

    The young people who lead on East Side Links organised an awesome awards night. East Side Links are a group of young people who work as youth advocates and support their peers who access the support delivered by East London non profit organisation Community Links. The event went will…
