    Chan + Hori Contemporary: Sick Scents

    I recently had the honour of getting in touch with Bradley Foisset, an artist with whom I had met a few times at work.

I gladly welcomed the opportunity to take my camera out for a spin – after all, who could say no to when presented with a chance for a private tour?
