Tee Byford : Wishes & Hopes for 2017


As we near the new year we’ve asked a special guest every day to take a moment to reflect on 2016 and to tell us about one photograph that best captures the year for him or her. It’s an assortment of treats for you to enjoy and contemplate as we all reflect on the year that has passed and conjure our hopes and wishes for the new year to come. It’s our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and of saying ‘Thank You’ for inspiring us throughout the year.

Artist and director Tee Byford from London/Totnes produced a series called “Driving Sideways” this year for Channel 4 about “Drifters” who like smoke, noise, and pushing car motors to the limit. After that went live he did some drifting of his own across the United States capturing the work Street Artist Louis Masai along with his co-filmmaker Emil Walker. We got to see him at the beginning in Brooklyn and three months later in Miami after he boomeranged to the west coast and back. Today he shares with you one of his favorites from 2016.
