Having the option to use a camera to juxtapose hues, textures and shapes was, and still is, a real thrill. When I was just a kid, my camera was my way of entertaining myself. It wasn’t until I got to college and started creating my cross-colour work that I realised I could make statements and shed my point of view about race and sexuality by using my camera.Tell us about your latest exhibition.Autograph’s [a London-based arts charity] mission is to “enable the public to explore identity, representation, human rights and social justice”.
