We asked a handful of our favourite photographers to look back at 2018 and remember it through the photographs they took. From i-D contributions to personal pictures of friends, family and strangers on the street, this is Davey Adesida: My Year in Photos.

Davey Adesida captures beautiful portraits. Raised in Nigeria, but now living in NYC, he's photographed the likes of fashion collective Vaquera for i-D, Rejjie Snow for The Last Magazine and Stranger Things's Caleb McLaughlin for Neu Neu Magazine. When speaking to i-D earlier in the year about his approach, Davey discussed his techniques for capturing such moving imagery “I use a lot of Kodak. It’s nice for skin tones.”

It was really fun getting to shoot Caleb McLaughlin from Stranger Things. There was a great energy that day.

February
A couple of years ago, when I was staying in London I introduced one of my best friends to Rejjie Snow. Years later I shot him for The Last Magazine. I was very honoured. I actually discovered Rejjie through i-D straight ups so long ago.

A brand commissioned me to document my view of California. It was a dream. California is my favourite state.

A jacket on a tree in Malibu. An art director really liked this image, which led to a commission, so I'm very happy about this shot.
