The deaths of photographer Khadija Saye, her mother and all the others lost in the Grenfell Tower fire in North Kensington aka Ladbroke Grove, London, have affected us very deeply here at Untitled. They were killed by local and national government policies punishing those who are not wealthy or who are of the “wrong” background, social class or age.
Being born somehow wrong and how that intimately affects your life and career is something we both know well. Each of us has lived in and loved West and Central London, their people, their cultures, their places, their diversity, their creativity and their opportunities. The happy memories of our friends and experiences there have stayed with us ever since, the high points of our lives.
Evening everyone! This week we're so very pleased to welcome Khadija Saye (@saye_photo) in taking over our feed! Khadija's work includes some amazing alternative photographic processes, which are currently exhibiting at the #DiasporaPavilion with @icf__ as part of the #VeniceBiennale2017. • • • #MetroImaging #MetroPrint #MetroTakeover #StayTuned #Photography #Tintype #ctype #giclee #printisnotdead #filmisnotdead #instatakeover #london #gallery #photolab #kodak #fujifilm
Ms Saye was on the verge of a major career breakthrough, having been selected to show her work in the Diaspora Pavilion at this year’s Venice Biennale. She was the student of a student of a student of mine from when I was a university art school photography teacher.
