Dwayne Fields for Merrell
STILLS AND FILM FOR MERRELL
Raised in Hackney, after moving there from Jamaica as a youngster, Dwayne knows more than most about the devastating effects violent crime can have on young people in Britain.
At a time when escalating gun and knife crime is second to probably only Brexit on the national news agenda, Dwayne believes in the power of the outdoors and thinks it could be used to help curb the shootings and stabbings happening in cities across the country.
Shot and filmed over one day this Spring alongside Brandnation, we told Wayne's story from council tower block to Epping Forest. Locations were based around Dwayne's experiences growing up which added poignance. It was one of this early Spring days when the sun was out, the Spring cleaning breeze was blowing and everything was full of new promise. Fresh back from Vietnam the day before, jet lag wasn't getting in the way of this one and I still had the Nikon Z6 loan to play with which rendered these sublimely crisp portraits on the 1.8 50mm.
