Kodak - Kodak Ektra: C.R.E.A.M

I submitted a brief to a photo-documentary competition by Kodak. The brief was to shoot a photo-documentary based on a social issue using their new smartphone, the Kodak Ektra. I was fortunate enough to win the brief and phone.
My brief was about the story of Nezyah, a friend of mine. Nezyah is an independent cheesecake maker from East London, like me. The documentary tells his story but really shows the reality of today's entrepreneur. We live and work at home, balancing personal and family matters at the same time whilst trying to make a living. Nezyah makes his custom made cheesecakes by hand with imported ingredients and sells them out of his car throughout London to customers who find him via his Instagram and Snapchat accounts. He interacts with them directly and stays on the road for whole days.
The documentary was exhibited at The Photography Show in Birmingham NEC. I gave a talk on it which was broadcasted via Facebook Live and the work was also hosted on Kodak's Instagram page.
