Huge thanks to Dee Lee Live for giving up her Saturday evening and capturing the Youth Congress celebration event in such brilliant photos at no charge to Grit. Some info about her:
From an early age I had discovered that although I enjoyed giving detailed and animated descriptions of what I saw, it was also possible, exciting and necessary to pause for a moment in time and share my story through visuals, vivid picture. The eye of a lens.
When I connected that with my love of music, sport, nature and the human form in portrait - my photography came alive.
A huge passion for music and event photography has enabled me to travel the world photographing the likes of Tarrus Riley, Chronixx, Beenie Man, Bryan Ferry, Protoje, MC Bushkins, Talib Kweli and many more.
In 2016 I also had the opportunity to photograph for Arsenal FC, featuring in The Guardian along with their own match programme.
Photography is my passion as it allows me to capture moments that could often be lost with time. I live by the words -
Never forget or miss a moment ... view 'life through a different medium'
