    Advertorial for Beats by Dre featured in the "Coming Thru" issue of Soccer Bible. After reading the theme of the next issue I came up with the idea of shooting Manchester City's Phil Foden in his hometown of Stockport. I had the idea of shooting him against the muted industrial backdrop dressed in high fashion sportswear infused looks to show the juxtaposition of his roots against his fame and success with City. After putting together mood boards I sourced a stylist and shot the project for the coming issue.

    After researching Hackney Wick F.C. (a semi-professional football club that supports their local community of Hackney) I found out about a charity football match they were organising featuring some of the U.K.'s most prominent rappers and grime emcees. I secured a press pass for the event and photographed some of the artists in attendance as well as those playing. I then wrote an article for CLASH magazine about the event and music's position within wider debate about gang violence and crime.

    MA Media & Communication Goldsmiths, University of London
    London, United Kingdom
    Whilst studying at Goldsmiths the elective modules I have chosen have been: Race, Empire & Nation, Post-colonial theory, and Social Media in Everyday life "a global perspective". Studying this subject matter has given me a more holistic understanding of the systems and processes through which society and culture in manufactured. In the creative industries this is crucial perspective because understanding culture and society is key to communicating ideas accurately to consumers. It has also given me a deeper understanding of the importance of authenticity and responsible representation. I feel my expanded political and sociological knowledge is also evident in my journalistic work.
