About

Arteh Odjidja is a commercial fashion/portraiture and fine art photographer born and bred in London,where he resides today. Growing up with a father working inthe filmmaking industry, Arteh Odjidja developed an early lovefor the creative process, and showed sure signs that he was destined for acareer in art and design.

Specialising in fashion/portraiture and fine art photography, Arteh has managed tobuild up his commerical portfolio with commissions from some of theworld’s most recognized brands in menswear fashion and luxury, including Leica camera, Paul Smith, Ozwald Boateng and Montblanc. 

Arteh’s desire to expand his repertoire has led him into the art world. The SavileRow designer and long time collaborator - Ozwald Boateng OBE, housed his firstsolo exhibition 'Stranger in Moscow' in 2013 which was shortlisted for the AOP awards in the same year. He has since exhibited his work extensively in the US and the UK as a contributing artist in the world renowned 'Dandy Lion Project- Exhibition' and book published by Aperture New York. Arteh's work has been featured in established industry publications such as Black+White Photography magazine, The British Journal of Photography, The Photoworks annual, The New York times and the Huffington Post.

Arteh’s passion to share his experience and inspire others wanting to discover their creative voice has seen him accept an ambassadorship from Leica Camera UK to run photography workshops throughout the UK and accept invitations to speak on panels and present talks on different aspects of the visual industry. Credits include the Museum of Contemporary Photography Chicago IL, University of Brighton, London College of Fashion and the Brighton Photo Biennial 2016. 

Arteh continues to add to his portrait series 'Strangers' which focuses on portraying the aspirations / dreams of young migrants. With the aim of re-addressing the so often negatively skewed narrative of young migrants to major cities around the world.
