Othello De'Souza-Hartley

Photographer and visual artist

2015 Southbank Centre 'Africa Utopia'

The commission was to setup a photo studio where the festival audience could come and have their photo taken drawing from influences like Malik Sidibe, Seydou Keita, and Omar Viktor Diop.

As a backdrop, I used African Wax Print cloth featuring a lot of red. Red is major component of my work.
