London-based photographer and filmmaker Gabriel Moses will unveil his first exhibition at 180 Studios this April, featuring around 50 photographs from his career across fashion, music and sport, including never-before-seen images.

The exhibition will also see the premiere of two new short films, including Ijó, commissioned by 180 Studios, that follows a group of young ballet dancers in Lagos, Nigeria, exploring common themes within Moses’ work through the intersections of art, family and culture.

Inspired at a young age by black and white ancestral photography, identity and community has continuously shaped Moses’ aesthetic – drawing on his South London roots and Nigerian Heritage to create reflective works that feel emotionally resonant. Putting emotive storytelling at the forefront of his practice, Moses produces beautifully soulful images characterised by deep, moody colour palettes, that are truly captivating and tell a story.

A self-taught photographer, Moses was offered his first directing role with Nike at the age of eighteen and went on to be the youngest photographer to shoot a cover for Dazed. He has collaborated with brands and designers including Adidas, Beats by Dre, Dior, Moncler, Supreme, Apple, Burberry, Virgil Abloh and Pharrell. His photographs have been featured in publications including Harper’s Bazaar, The Face, i-D, 032c and The New York Times.
