Emile Ebrahim Kelly
Working primarily with photography and image appropriation, my current practice centres on notions of identity and community within the metropole, with particular reference to the shaping forces of globalisation in a post-colonial world. It is rooted in the photographic narratives of documentary, the ethnographic and portraiture. With this in mind I established a pop-up portrait studio and project-space, the International Portrait Gallery, offering free portraits in order to spark long-term relationships with individuals in Elephant & Castle. These portraits were produced collaboratively with my subjects after initial encounters, discussions and interviews.
