Some people walk down the street with their head in the clouds, others immersed in music and some are immersed by their surroundings. I fall into the latter category, I see the world through a frame. A story only becomes a story when it’s framed by a director and the world only becomes a picture when it’s perfectly frozen in time.
I moved to London in the summer with Material and since have experienced more in four months than I did in the entire 2014. Life is what you make it and with so much colour, culture and creativity surrounding me I have drenched myself in it like a baby with its first taste of sugar.
One of my passions has always been photography and during this year Material have developed that skill by supporting me through night classes learning how to really get the best out of my DSLR. Material can’t take any credit for my Instagram talent though, I owe that to vscocam.
Which brings me onto my main focus of this blog, street art. My Instagram feed is full of it. I seek it out. I crave it. I capture it and by doing so I spread often hidden messages around the world through colourful shapes, striking typography and impeccable placement.
I thought I would share with you a selection of some of the street art I have captured over the last few months around North and East London. Among my favourite artists are Himbad, Anna Laurini and Gregos. Two of whom I have caught live in the act on the street and another who regularly reposts my pictures of his art all the way from Paris. I love images. They really do bring the world together.
