AUGUST 2018 in MyLondon CALENDAR I've always been a fan of street art, and this mural one of my favourites in London since I was a teen. Created by Ray Walker in 1985, it was painted to promote peace and unity, while making a statement against nuclear weapons. "As a music lover, being able to combine it with street art in photography is really cool." I met Tashomi around 10 years ago at a gig, and when I had the idea for this shot, he came to mind. I asked him to play his sax while taking the pictures, which meant we attracted some attention. Tashomi began playing the saxophone aged 16, is in an Afrobeats band, and currently a resident at a live music bar in Soho. Maya has never studied photography or owned a DSLR, but would love to do both soon and develop her passion. "The dream is to be a commissioned photographer on some level and have my own exhibitions. That would be a bucket list tick."
