Michael Forbes

A fine art photographer for over 10 years, Michael is inspired to make art which explores his personal and cultural experience as an African Caribbean man. ‘Souls of the Diaspora’ is a photo documentary project on teenagers – their interactions, peer pressure, fashion and their bodies. It is a good example of the themes that dominate Michael’s work: education, poverty, race, masculinity, fashion, wealth and the nature of success.
