Jermaine Francis on film : Lost In Music A Post Industrial Dreamscape

An exploration of race and politics via the dancefloor.

Today my guest is the photographer and filmmaker Jermaine Francis.

Jermaine and I discuss his recent film Lost in Music: A Post Industrial Dreamscape - an exploration of race and politics within a dancefloor context. This work was recently presented alongside a discussion with the writer Nathalie Olah and photographer Edward "Eddie" Otchere at Camden Arts Centre.

His practice works within documentary & portraiture, in the format of personal driven photo projects & editorials, exploring the issues that arise from our interaction in the everyday environment. He has published two books, Something That Seems So Familiar and Rhythms from the Metroplex.

Jermaine's work can be found in publications such as i-D, 10 Magazine and the Wall Street Journal, and in exhibitions at GaleriePCP in Paris and Saatchi Gallery.

I loved talking with Jermaine and I hope that you enjoy his words on his rich creative life as much as I did.
