strolling is a documentary series that follows conversations of people of the black african diaspora. the series began in london and expanded to paris, amsterdam, brussels, milan, new york and kingston, covering various subjects. the series also explores the physical manifestations of these intimate yet global discussions. emeke, who was the cinematographer and editor on this project, takes a deliberately subjective approach, lingering the lens on fleeting and subtle secondary processes that emerge manifest through hands, feet, gesture and positionality to the space in which each interviewee occupies, perhaps made possible by emeke’s decision to film subjects alone, or with only one other person present.
