THE BUMPKIN FILES
BY SARA DARLING
Karis Beaumont has been named the winner of this year's Power Of Black Identity photo competition with a series of work called 'Bumpkin Files' which answered the brief to raise awareness of black life in Britain beyond the London-centric narrative, and showcase diversity.
As well as winning £6,000 in camera equipment, she will have 1-2-1 sessions at the Nikon school and have her images displayed on billboards across central London courtesy of Jack agency.
The winning shots will also be on display at "The Power Of" Festival which is coming to Lambeth Town Hall on June 12th and will celebrate the very best of Black British identity.
Founder of diversity, equality and inclusion consultancy, The Fashion Minority Report, Daniel Peters adds
"Beaumont’s work is such a worthy winner- she responded to the brief of what Black identity means for her in a creative and nuanced way.'
