Shade Podcast engages a wide community of creatives across disciplines...., photographers, painters, writers, filmmakers and even policy makers working within the media and beyond, who have challenged the concepts of race and identity within their work.  Hosted by Lou Mensah

Lou has worked in the creative industries for 20 years, as a fine art photographer, gaining awards for her work from Nick Knight
& Alexander McQueen, and commercially she has worked on stills for Directors Antony Minghella, Sundance winner Marc Silver as well as photographing musicians. Having exhibited her work alongside Mapplethorpe & Helmut Newton, photographed at LFW and for Condé Nast, Shade Podcast focuses on discussions with those she has worked with and met along her creative journey, to discuss the role of race and identity in the creative process.
