Rotimi Fani-Kayode & Alex Hirst


Fani-Kayode and Hirst created a photographic world in which the body is the focal site for an exploration of the relationship between erotic fantasy and ancestral spiritual values.

What they brought back from their travels into such nocturnal spaces are glimpses into a world illuminated by the ancient enigma of something so violent, so marvellous and so tragic as to be unrepresentable: the human condition of ecstasy.

Rotimi Fani-Kayode was born in Nigeria in 1955 and died in London in 1989. Alex Hirst was born in the UK in 1951 and died in 1992. Their common career spanned a mere six years.

Welcome to our website.

Please note, our Festive Season last postal dates are below. We would always advise ordering in advance of these deadlines to avoid disappointment.

UK Orders: Friday 16th December, 2022

International Orders: Friday 9th December, 2022.

We strongly recommend that you select the trackable, courier option for all your Festive deliveries rather than the standard postal options, as all Royal Mail services may be disrupted by strike action. Royal Mail is also non-trackable.
