I met singer songwriter, Kojo, nearly 20 years ago and we’ve kept in contact ever since. When Kojo reached out for an updated shoot I thought it would be a great chance to catch up and shoot at the same time. Kojo was flying off to Barbados the following day so time was crucial and luckily for him the stars alined and we met up on a very wet day in Nottinghill.
Kojo hasn’t changed a bit in 20 years and he was vibing to do some shots together. I did a few shots against some wicked wall paper in a pub to get us both warmed up, followed by some street shots around the neighbourhood.
I wanted to get more out of Kojo and break his hard look so as we took shelter from the rain under the doors of what use to be the club Subterranea, I asked him to start shaking his dreds around. The results were amazing!
