stephen is an emerging director who has directed films for i-d magazine, the tate and victoria miro galleries, and music artists including klein and jay boogie. he grew up in south east london, and studied politics at goldsmiths university, before being accepted onto the bbc’s prestigious production trainee scheme, where he began his filmmaking career.

having worked for companies such as i-d, vice media and the bbc, stephen is able to combine both his journalistic background with his visual art sensibilities, to tell beautifully emotive and thought-provoking stories. the films he makes explore the topics of race, sexuality and youth culture.

as part of the tate’s queer british art 1861-1967 exhibition, stephen was recently commissioned as a queer director of colour to respond to the brief and produce an intimate film portrait of a subject he is close to, with the aim of depicting the diversity of lgbtq experiences in britain today.
