'We Are British' by Rio Blake
Acclaimed young photographer, Rio Blake, is creating a photobook celebrating Britain’s multicultural society and contribution - featuring mixed heritage British young people. Rio is currently travelling the country taking photographs of the diverse people she meets in different towns and cities.
‘’The photobook is reinforcing the idea that Great Britain is only great because of the cultural diversity of the people in it. Britain is famed for its tolerant, multicultural society which should be celebrated.’’
RIO BLAKE is a freelance, North London based photographer, taking photos since the age of 15, as a way to create memories for herself and her friends by documenting their day to day activities. This allowed her to specialise in a certain intimacy between subject and photographer, which can still be seen in her work today.
