For this year’s Black History Month, I thought I’d share some old images of the the Peckham Portraits.

This photography series of black actors was shot by Franklyn Rodgers, for Fraser James’ Underexposed Arts organisation. The photographer cleverly played with reflective light and shadow, to create some extremely captivating images.

Those captured were Adjoa Andoh; Earl Cameron; Noel Anthony Clarke; Dona Croll; Idris Elba; Treva Etienne; Don Gilet; David Harewood; Fraser James; Lennie James; Marianne Jean-Baptiste; Jocelyn Jee Esien; Wil Johnson; Kwame Kwei-Armah; Martina Laird; Delroy Lindo; Adrian Lester; Petra Letang; Patrice Naiambana; Wunmi Mosaku; David Oyelowo; Diane Parish; Hugh Quarshie; Marsha Thomason; Colin Salmon; Eamonn Walker; Rudolph Walker; Ashley Walters; Don Warrington; and Angela Wynter.
