I've always been obsessed with transformations. Whether it’s as simple as a youtube tutorial or watching a time-lapse of a butterfly exiting a chrysalis, change has always fascinated me. There’s something magical about taking one thing and transforming it into something different. Truly, modern society is obsessed with those people who change their image all the time, whether it’s Lady Gaga going from electro-pop to jazz or Beyonce releasing a Christian gospel track, it’s become something expected.

  That obsession deeply impacts the way I dress. I think of every outfit as a “character”, and usually ask myself “who am I today” instead of “who am I going to wear”. I allow myself to be a suited “serious businessman” in the day while rocking ripped jeans at night and acting like a sleazy rock star. Sometimes I’ll become the minimalist artist who paints every day in their Parisian loft or the LA fashion blogger who has an inherent ease about everything they wear. Some may call that a lack of focus, but I think it’s quite the opposite. In essence, my style is every style, my taste lies exactly within finding the most interesting parts within certain style groups and putting them together.

  I chose to take these pictures at Battersea Power Station as it belies the core of what I’m about. Previously a coal-fired power station, this iconic London landmark is now firmly on its way to becoming a vibrant and diverse lifestyle building. The project aims to lift the station out of the soot and into the sunshine, transforming its purpose entirely, yet keeping the core exactly the same. That’s me in a nutshell, I can change my look and what I wear a million times, but underneath it all I’ll always be exactly the same person.
