Photographer Shane Laws is creating an exciting new series shot entirely on 35mm film. The work focuses on Danny Phantom (AKA Eugene Ekomblo) a young, Plaistow-based rapper. Fascinated by the trials and tribulations faced by up and coming artists, Shane is working on a number of projects with Eugene, including a new music video.
East London is a key inspiration for Shane, who grew up in East Ham in a family of artists: “I think that East London, in the last couple of years, has become a breeding ground of contemporary art.” Shane explains that the area is especially geared towards young people, providing many opportunities for expression through music and photography.
