Benji Reid is an award-winning photographer; his work is inherently political and shines a light on the black British experience.
The themes in his work explore Mental Health, fatherhood and self-actualization through stills photography, with a focus on humanity and the fragility of the black experience. Benji's work seeks to counter the mainstream narrative, whilst leaning into the magical and the incongruent. He's inspired by the alchemy of the arts and how he can turn despondency into joy, darkness into light, reality into fantasy.
He is the winner of the Welcome Trust Mental Health category 2020.
