Here is a selection of my photographs from the afternoon spent in Westminster on the first Climate Strike Friday.
How can the creative industries respond to climate change and global warming? With this in mind, D&AD facilitated 'Our toughest brief yet' and invited climate change activists and creative industry leaders to have their say on how we can take responsibility and use its collective creative powers to drive possible solutions for global warming and the environmental crisis at hand. The debate saw a passionate discussion on how creatives can find solutions to climate change in advertising. Here are some of my photos from the night.
My photos from the Saturday’s demo outside the Polish Embassy in London. This event gathered supporters of the LGBTQ+ community in Poland, which is currently under attack from the right wing Polish government and the Catholic Church. We were joined by the anti fascist demonstration and marched down to the BBC to face a demo organised by Tommy Robinsons’ supporters.
Here are my photos documenting some time spent outside the Brazilian Embassy on Friday evening. The protest organised by Extinction Rebellion aimed to bring attention to Brazilian goverment’s contribution to the catastrophic fires in the Amazon.
New Blood Festival took place 11 - 13 July at The Old Truman Brewery, London, with a private view on 10 July. Design and illustration students from universities from all over the country have shown their work and responded to briefs. I was there to document talks, exhibition, general atmosphere and the award ceremony held at the Oval Space.
More photos from the event are available here:
On Friday night I documented events taking place across Chisenhale Art Place; including Open Studios and ‘Snakes’, the performance by Jia-Yu Corti & Owen Ridley-DeMonick at Chisenhale Dance Space. Sadly I’m unable to share photos from the performance as the artists didn’t wish for the documentation of the work in progress to be published.
Today I photographed the launch event for Issue 3 of STILL LIFE, the zine dealing with performance, practice and politics.
The highlights of the event were live performances from anastasia freygang and António Branco and Riccardo T.
A special drinks reception hosted by Director Martin Clark and artist Amy Sillman to celebrate acclaimed Sillman's first major exhibition in the UK. The highlights of the evening were the late opening of the exhibition (“Landline’), an interdisciplinary performance by current artist in residence, Athanasios Argianas and drinks in the CAC’s garden. I photographed it all.
