Thought #22

Sarah Moon is a master of photography, or so is titled the video. I’m absolutely blown away by the (little) work of hers that I have come across. Most of it (what I’ve found anyway) is shot on polaroid, not the integrated shit, but actual peel apart which gives you a positive and a negative.

Two deposits for the Culture bank please

Monday 23rd June, I was awarded the luxury of some me time and decided to head to the Rude Boy Returns exhibition at Somerset house. Mad excited since my art directed emailed me about it the month prior, I knew I had to go.

The exhibition consisted of 5 rooms and a partial corridor within the south wing. The exhibition shows the evolution of the rude boy style from its roots in Jamaica to today’s arbiters of the style. Rude boy style is this fusion of impeccable tailored pieces and elements of different cultures and fashion genres. It’s about standing out and being true to yourself. That Tom Ford quote “Dressing well is a kind of good manners…” kept springing to mind as I wondered around the exhibition. Hopefully its one you got to see.

I had the pleasure of meeting one of the Rude Boys from the exhibition, Seye Adelekan a musician. Dressed very sharply that one could not resist but to take a polaroid too.

 

Becoming incredible indulgent, I had a peak at the Colour through Form exhibition. Beautifully arranged pieces and fabrics, all very graphical. It was a great way to see fabrics, rugs and textiles presented in this way. Very different from the usual swatch packs found at designer’s stalls. Again, one to catch if you fancy a bit of interior design.

In true wanna-be photographer and graphic designer styling, here are the results from a shoot I recently did with Nadia+Zehra at the Barbican. I’ve got to say, these girls are extremely talented, definitely check out their work on the link above. With one of my good friends, Kurtis, who was roped in offered to model and had to wear make up LOL, the results, I think, are pretty darn good. Well done team. Check the rest of the editorial out below.
