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.
About the ABF
The ABF has been supporting artists for over 200 years. Today our aim is to enable artists to begin, develop or sustain a fully professional career.
Having identified the needs of artists and in continuing to serve the objects of the charity, we are currently partnering with academic institutions for provision of grant funding. We are therefore not responding to any grant requests from individual artists and their dependents.
The ABF provides an ideal framework for helping to sustain the arts in Britain. We believe many companies and individuals will want to help. Donations to the Fund will be channelled to provide well-considered practical help to artists in need.
