 "We didn't quite understand then that the journey itself was the point," Akomfrah tells fellow artist Ayana V Jackson as the two talk to each other in Encounters. "There was no grand finale, no result, there would be no moment of epiphany."


Photographer Ayana V. Jackson interviews  world-renowned British artist John Akomfrah for the Autumn/Winter 2021 issue which is now available exclusively through Elephant Kiosk to pre-order from today. It features legendary musician and artist Laurie Anderson, British-Chinese artist Yan Wang Preston and acclaimed Nigerian-American artist Toyin Ojih Odutola.
