The Effra FC Sessions #1

view profile

Grant Simon Rogers is a group administrator Grant Simon Rogers says:

Effra FC will be hosting a special evening at The Brixton Pound on November 1st. Photographers Ted Dave and Grant Simon Rogers will be in conversation with one another, exploring their motivations and projects.

In order to raise a small amount of funds for the evening, there will also be a raffle! A bar will also be running.

Brixton local and trustEffrarian Ted says 'of late I've been using a 24mm lens to pull more content into the frame, though the contrived stance I pair it with is a less recent innovation. I try to capture the magic of the up-all-night club as we stumble to the park: "what are these memories that slip around the edges.'

Grant Simon Rogers is an artist and lecturer who lives and works in London. Grant's pictures are all taken during the daytime but viewers often mistake them for night time. Influenced by cinema, he as been taking pictures since he was 6 years old. He claims not to be a technical photographer, using his passion for visual literacy as the tool for his distinctive compositions.
