Othello Grey is a self taught photographer, his work strives to unpack the turmoil of a constant internal struggle. During his early stages he realized his memory was too sporadic and used photography to catalogue his experiences/stages of his life as his mind discarded them against his control. Throughout his photographic journey he’s learned how to weave those ephemeral moments together and create engaging dialogues with them through his fashion editorials. Constantly questioning the purpose of all things, he chooses not to sit in any particular photographic style- rather searching for the nuances and mundanities in his subjects/stories and experimenting with how they’re captured. As he continues to grow he hopes to use his platform to aid in removing the guise of beauty and normalizing black faces and bodies to create reference points he never had as a child. Othello is currently focused on publishing his first book, his first solo exhibition and releasing music.
