Born and bred in London, and with a father working in filmmaking, Arteh Odjidja realised at a young age that he was destined for a career in art and design.
In 2004 Arteh completed a degree in Graphic Design at the LCC, Univerisity of the Arts. He worked in this industry for a few years before rediscovering his love for photography and story telling. With this renewed passion he began exploring fashion photography and gained assisting roles with a number of established photographers.
Specializing in fashion, portrait and documentary photography, Arteh has managed to build his portfolio with commissions from some of the world’s most recognized brands in menswear fashion and luxury, including Paul Smith and Montblanc.
Arteh’s desire to expand his repertoire has also led him into the art world. The Savile Row designer and long time collaborator, Ozwald Boateng, housed his first exhibition in 2013. He has since exhibited his work extensively in the US and the UK and has also been featured in numerous industry publications such as Black+White magazine, The British Journal of Photography and The Photoworks annual.
Arteh’s passion to share his experience has seen him accept invitations to speak in panel discussions 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.
