This Engagement talk features Award Winning Portrait Photographer, Arteh Odjidja.
Arteh Odjidja is an award-winning portrait photographer and educator born and raised in London. Arteh considers London to be his home and a place of inspiration for his work. He also draws much inspiration from his global travels and his focus on empowerment through the medium of portraiture.
He has been commissioned to create work for some of the world’s most recognized brands and organisations including Virgin Atlantic, Christian Dior,Paul Smith, Ozwald Boateng Savile Row, Mont blanc, Oxfam-UK to name a few. Over the last 7 years, Arteh has also been active as an ambassador photographer for Leica Camera UK–allowing him to share his knowledge and experience through hands-on workshops and presentations throughout the UK.
Arteh’s growing passion to make a positive impact through his work has led him to explore international project-based assignments and self-initiated personal projects, that challenge our sense of privilege and equality in our modern world. His well publicised ‘The Stranger Series’ Project which profiles the stories of young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds has been exhibited extensively throughout the US and UK in prominent galleries and public museums including the Tate Modern, The British Museum, City Hall London and the Museum of Contemporary Photography–Chicago.
The event will be around 90 minute and is Free.

Arteh's The Stranger Series project will be published by Bluecoat following a Kickstarter campaign.
