The Black Diaspora plays an important part in my thinking in relation to my work, such as; social & political issues around education, poverty, race, masculinity, fashion, wealth and the nature of success. Souls of the Diaspora started life as a photo documentary project on teenagers, focusing on their interactions, peer pressure, fashion and their bodies. Eventually this work evolved into a project exploring the Black Diaspora and the migration of cultural roots and human DNA. The visual representation of DNA, the double helix was used as an aesthetic tool to create abstract layers to the final images.
