Bureau of Silly Ideas
Valentia Place



Guided tour and workshops: Saturday 16 June (11am, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm)

Eddie Otchere will be delivering a photographic exhibition focussed on what Brixton means to him, along with two days of photography workshops, including a pop up dark room.

At Rapport Festival Eddie invites participants using disposable cameras to capture their Brixton on Film. This will create a living legacy that will be on display during the course of the festival. Eddie will give participants a guided tour of Brixton, based on the uprisings, the community, the market and the monuments.

He will then assist in the developing and creation of contact sheets and printing of the work, as well as curating the display, which will act as a visual narrative exploration of the soul of Brixton.

Eddie Otchere is best known for his photographs of the seminal rappers and DJs of the mid 1990s and early noughties. His celebrated works include portraits of Biggie Smalls, Blackstar (Mos Def & Thalib Kweli) So Solid Crew, Est’elle, and Goldie.

Otchere’s photographs have been exhibited and published worldwide, including on the covers of major international magazines such as Urb, Lodown and Mixmag and on the covers of some of rap music’s seminal albums.
