London is one of the most diverse cities in the world, our diversity is one of our greatest strengths. Being African British, born and bred in London I wanted to create a series that celebrates the ethnographic that represents our cities.

For Deep-rooted, I asked people to pose for me using African prints as a poetic mean to explore our roots through the use of colours, patterns and textures.

Everyone has a story to tell, whether it's culturally or not. London makes everyone different, and that's a good thing.

Welcome to deep-rooted, my story.
