Neil Kenlock worked for commercial studios before becoming a freelance photographer. He joined the Black Panther movement, which worked to combat racial oppression, police brutality and discrimination. From the movement’s early days in the UK, Kenlock documented its activities and demonstrations. On display here is a portrait of four young girls posing with their customised bags, embroidered with Black Panther emblems. For Kenlock, the photograph ‘Keep Britain White’ Graffiti, Balham is one of his most important images. He said, ‘It reminds people of what life was like for new immigrants in the UK.
