Taken Word - Camden
Colour and beauty did not cease to impress me in #Camden. I met yet another creative on my journeys. This talented and lovely person is another positive representation of the colourful city. We had a great chat and exchanged creative thoughts.
Talk about cool and interesting - had a great chat with this adorable pair. Full of life and free spirited! It was while talking to them and explaining the idea behind this project, they agreed with my logic; that with all the people that we walk past, we don't interact with unless we have to.
Yoshi - My name is really Chrissy but on my 30th birthday, I was playing a game with some friends and one of the characters was called Yoshi...then for some reason, they all started calling me Yoshi
This is the coolest mother and daughter ever. We were both stood watching a busker do his thing on a homemade drum set. I couldn't help but notice the great chemistry between them. I actually had to ask because they could have well been sisters.
I stopped at Sabnum's stall in #Camden and she had these lovely shawls and scarfs. I believe they were made from cashmere. Sabnum did not speak much - it was the end of the day and I could tell she just wanted to pack up and go.
In the heart of Camden Market, reside this Rasta shop. Yup, I always seem to run into the roots. These guys were really high spirited though. Although they're running a shop, they had reggae playing in the background and were singing and playing the drums which just brought a nice vibes to the surroundings. Irie :-)
Doo Gee - We have been here for over 20 years now. Not me personally but the shop has. I design all the t-shirts myself, it's a real passion. I consider myself an artist in my own right. I'm originally from Senegal but now live in
It was awesome heading back to the streets, meeting people and exchanging contact. Why did it seem so hard before? Quite simple, look for someone you want to engage with, and engage. People are more than willing to have a conversation. After spending a few hours in Camden, I stopped several people, all of which said "yes, you can take my photo"
This guy Rob, is a cool dude. Initially I hadn't planned to photograph him. He was actually serving me at a pub he works at in Camden. But we chatted for a bit and after discovering he's so full of character and a really genuine guy, I just had to! Once again, another creative. So far, everyone I've came in contact with in Camden, is creative in one form or another.
This was the first person I stopped in Camden. I'm not sure if it was the red lipstick, the cool sun glasses, or the stunning lady which blended in to the background(It's really a contrast). Only later to discover she was a like minded creative!
