i-D – Bambii “NITEVISION” Video

Following the single came the video(!!), which premiered on i-D – along with an in depth interview. I don’t know if I need to say that I took that photo, I guess its obvious lol (?).
Tbh Bambii’s interviews are always extremely insightful, adding Hazel as the interviewer created the perfect marriage. Read it here and watch the video above.
Oh I was also on set, adding whatever bits of guidance I could while documenting the club scene. This also led to me making an unexpected cameo- I had no intention of being in the video but Bambii (seeing the vision more clearly) insisted I did. I naturally oppose presenting myself over my body of work- so I’m happy she encouraged me to be in the video, I would have regretted if I didn’t.
Here are some of the photos from the day- it was a pleasure to capture this energy in a contained space, many times over the course of my life I’ve felt this euphoric freedom at parties- this may be one of the first times I’ve photographed it (The first set of photos is a shoot Bambii and I did a couple days before the video- we’ve done a lot of shoots lol) .

I was blessed with the opportunity to shoot Caribana for i-D‘s ‘straight up’ series. I haven’t been to Caribana in maybe 9 years or more, it was interesting to be in the setting again as an entirely different person. It was amazing to meet so many new people during the interview process and run into a lot of friends along the way. I also ran into my sister who was so shocked to see me there lol, as I’ve been teased as the ‘least Jamaican’ or ‘most Canadian’ in my family my entire life. All thanks to Hazel for making this happen!
