I 💛Dick... and vegetables, so this was I guess a dream commission... 😁 We shot these veggie penises for a well-known weekend magazine a while back and they have made people giggle a little ever since. 🍆🥒🌶 We had some very funny email conversations in the lead up to this shoot - “Re: Re: Fwd: Herbal Pubes?”
Morning! This is another one from us - @ilkafranz! Quite often food features in our work. It must be because we spend all day thinking about dinner and those thoughts creep into our shoot concepts.. 🤔Anyway! This one is from a series called Gluttony 🍔🍟
🍸🏝Dreaming of cocktails by the pool... 😌💭 We often collaborate with set designers but for this series we did it all ourselves. Franz is great at DIY - check out his ace tiling work! 🛠👀

We’ll be posting some of our work and writing a little about our process. . This one is called TV DINNER and is part of a series featuring some eccentric meals (including a “bottomless” brunch!).

@laurenmaccabee takeover 👋 Kids in Porto 👭 I was walking past a group of kids who were dancing in the street. They were all wearing beautiful colours that fitted together so well. I asked to photograph them then gestured for them to huddle together and create these shapes with their bodies. They were so confident and bold.
Hello 👋 @laurenmaccabee here taking over the Mother Instagram for this week. I’ll be sharing some documentary and portraiture work.
@sophiegreenstudio takeover. After a long day in church, children gather to buy ice cream as a special treat from the ice cream van at a special event called Harvest – an annual service which brings together all ages to celebrate God's goodness in creation every year. Here the city and the Aladura church traditions collide in a humorous and charming way. It was so perfect; the girls were just chatting amongst themselves and it was such a simple and natural scene to capture. #congregation #sophiegreen #loosejoints
@sophiegreenstudio takeover. Demola, Martin, Tunde and Moses. I find this an interesting image because for me it subtly demonstrates the many ways where traditions and modern culture dovetail. In their church these boys will sing and listen to native hymns and music but together as friends they enjoy hip hop and rap. They communicate in sacred texts or scriptures during service but I often heard slang being used outside of church. The coiled headphones around Martins neck is a trace of individuality that punctuates this image. #congregation #sophiegreen #loosejoints

@sophiegreenstudio takeover. Here are Mr Osigwa, Hannah and Edith seated in the food tent at Harvest Festival - a service which brings together all ages to celebrate God's goodness in creation every year. #congregation #sophiegreen #loosejoints
@sophiegreenstudio takeover. Dami In the church a powerful ray of sunlight streams through a small window, highlighting Dami, her baby who is restless after a long service, cries in her arms. #congregation #sophiegreen #loosejoints
@sophiegreenstudio takeover Seun & baby A father and his baby carried in a modern plastic carrier in one hand, Adidas pool sliders in the other, stands against a skyline dotted with cranes and shiny new-build flats. I was always fascinated by the juxtapositions where the congruent looked so beautiful and ethereal in their radiant white dress but strongly contrasting against their urban 21st Century surroundings. My initial fascination unfolded one Sunday morning in 2016 on Peckham rye lane where you can see church goers walk up and down as they flow in and out of the Aladura Spiritualist African churches. I had never seen the white garments before and I stopped a lady I saw on the street and complimented her on how beautiful she looked and asked if she would mind if I walked with her to her church and if I could join the service for the day. I was intrigued by what drew her to the church and the significance of her dress. Both she and the rest of the congregation welcomed me in – I then watched the 7 hour service in awe. A crowd of white robed men, women and children were singing, dancing and clapping to the beat of the drum, praying spontaneously in unison and following prayer from the service leader. I was entranced by this powerful display of their commitment to a faith, it was amazing to see people uniting through such a simple but obviously very moving and joyful shared experience. I learnt the dress was a visual marker, identifying them as members of the same group, linking them to their church and their broader African community as well as also being representative of their faith and their dedication to God. This first experience of the churches triggered a desire to further explore and document what I had witnessed. Ever since I have been making pictures by slowly getting to know Southwark’s various churches and gaining the trust of their pastors and congregations a process that has continued ever since. #congregation #sophiegreen #loosejoints
Hi there I’m Sophie, @sophiegreenstudio a British social documentary and portrait photographer and I’ll be taking over the @motherlondon instagram this week. Posting my first picture from my new series ‘Congregation’ published by @jointsloose - a 2 year work in progress, the book presents Southwark’s Aladura Spiritualist African churches and congregations. Often referred to as white garment churches, my images engage with these rarely documented dynamic communities who unite each weekend for Sunday service. Aladura is a denomination of Christianity predominantly practiced by Yoruba Nigerians, and in the last 40 years has become a ubiquitous part of London life – particularly in Southwark, which has the highest concentration of African churches outside the continent. Congregation observes a rich tapestry of worshippers and Sunday services, which are spoken in Yoruba and form a key social meeting point and place of cultural solidarity between African Londoners. Congregation asks questions about how individuals find collective identity and power within subcultures, and how cultural practice is assimilated into modern global contexts: traditional dress, food and customs rub up against modern technology and fashion, while devotional interiors colorfully fill the hidden, often industrial space that churches inhabit. My images engage directly with individuals through collaboration, posed portrait sessions and photographic workshops which serve to empower and engage with members of each congregation and their faith. Mixed in with naturalistic images of men, women and children, these stylized portraits highlight the performance of identity and communality that underpins religious practice. For those who would like a copy, the book is available to buy on the Loose Joints @jointsloose website now; http://www.loosejoints.biz/projects/publishing/congregation/ #congregation #sophiegreen #loosejoints
