HOMETOWN: A FOREIGN POLICY

Three poets and flute player walk into a chicken shop…

It was a night of poetry exploring identity, politics and belonging. 

Dervish Creative reached out and asked if I would be open to having some of my photography featured during the show. As Praveen Prathapan opened up the show with an incredible flute solo, images of Whitechapel market from my East London Hustle collection played in the background. 

This was the first time I was able to see how my photography interplayed with music and poetry and how these art forms can combine to create a unified narrative. 

The poets Zain Haider Awain, Jamal Mehmood and Zia Ahmed alongside Praveen captivated a packed house. I am looking forward to seeing what these talented creatives come up with next.
