    What you will learn in this course.

    Arteh Odjidja is an award-winning photographer whose work explores themes of identity and community. Born in London, he draws inspiration from his West African heritage. His projects aim to highlight the stories of those often overlooked in society, and challenge our sense of privilege and equality.

    In this short talk, we will discuss his project, The Stanger Series: Fears & Dreams. The work explores the very personal and dynamic stories of young migrants and refugees, adapting to a new existence; these timeless and candid portraits allow the audience to delve deeper into the complexity of migration.

    Whether used for stills photography or filmmaking, a camera offers the user a unique opportunity to tell a story. Here at Wex Photo Video, we recognise the value of those stories and believe they all deserve to be heard, as they provide an insight into the spectrum of human experiences lived across a nation of creative people.

    Our #ChangeTheImage campaign showcases a selection of talented individuals from a variety of cultural backgrounds, all of whom live and work in the UK. Join us for a week of inspiring, entertaining and educational events that reflect the diverse passions, skills and views of our community.
