Be My Next Inspiration

In a collaboration between the creative agency BUREAU and London’s writer development agency Spread the Word – a new initiative has launched. Aiming to recognise poetry as a creative craft that can inspire us all, 'Be My Next Inspiration' offers a chance to reflect on the city that we live in today, creating opportunities for the unheard voices of London to be heard. The initiative aims to help young poets understand the opportunities that words can offer.


In collaboration with BUREAU, Simon set out to create an authentic and stripped back portrait series of the young London poets. Using an entirely different approach to his usual process, each unretouched portrait was captured using only a single flashlight and without the help of a stylist or hair & make-up artist.
