YOUNG STRINGERS by Jamil GS

Young Stringers is a social innovative photo project that includes inner city youths in the north western part of Copenhagen, known to some as the hood. The area is colorful and primarily populated by multinational ethnicities. The diversity adds to the spice of life.

I chartered the project in late 2013 based in a need do inject some effort and positive vibes into a neighborhood that deserved it and to open the channels of communication in society in general.

Some of the images featured are taken by the youths themselves and they are currently gearing up for an exhibition during Copenhagen Photo Festival on June 4th.

NEW YORK NATIVES by Jamil GS

Thats the name of a new collection from KITH NY.  The setting is 1996 New York City, the prime of hip hop and street culture. This is the era I began shooting my first professional flix and I can afford to say that I played a vital part in documenting and helping hip hop at this time look better. It therefore makes sense that KITH NY reached out to me to shoot their lookbook and poster campaign for this set. The shoot features Mobb Deep, who even though I have worked with many of their peers, this was a first for us all. They had just come off a plane from Brazil, and we shared stories and fears of not being able to come back home because of all the Nectar and crazy glue that exists down there. 

Here are a few shots from the day and that are featured in the KITH NYC NY NATIVES x lookbook and campaign.

This thursday in Copenhagen the Young Stringers will introduce their creative experiment to an audience of 160.000 commuters, everyday for 10 days. With no formal prior knowledge and equipped w nothing more than their dedicated willingness to learn and explore, these young bucks have taken to the streets of North West Copenhagen with a few Canon dslr cameras and trotted their way forward into the unknown of the creative abyss. In a very short time and with just a little guidance these dudes have made great progress and I am proud of them. Besides exhibiting in the subway/metro, they are showing at the Red Square, in Norrebro, Copenhagen, should anyone happen to be in this neck of our planet. This all goes down during Copenhagen Photo Festival “Nate dogg(rip) said smoke weed everyday, I say create everyday. Suit your self. One love.
