This project began as a response to media coverage of teenage gun and knife crime in London. I felt it was important to find some of these young people and offer them a chance to voice themselves through visuals, text and moving image. During the work I met a young man called Jean-Claude who went by the street name ‘Vipoh’. We quickly became friends and adopted a collaborative style of working where he felt as involved in the work as I did. This method of production has served us well, and the project continues to evolve as it follows his life through periods of change and development.
