Eddie Otchere


Born and raised in South London, Eddie Otchere is best known for the gamut of photographs he’s taken of artists from hip hop’s second golden age. He’s shot everyone from Jay-Z, Biggie Smalls and the late Aaliyah to the iconic series of images of the Wu Tang Clan. Otchere was innovative in documenting the 90s birth of British bass culture on the drum and bass scene, most especially shooting the seminal Metalheadz night at the Blue Note. Otchere is the archivist for the venerated Jamaican photographer, Charlie Phillips, responsible for publishing in 2015 How Great Thou Art, Phillip’s 50 year documentary of African Caribbean funerals in London. More recently he is also the resident DJ at the National Portrait Gallery.
