Mugshot - Simeon Smith.jpg
 

Hi! 

My name is Simeon, and I make music, images and films.

You might have seen my work in Lomography or Amateur Photography magazine, on the Presence App, or at London Fashion Week.

I take an old Leica camera from 1938 everywhere with me. I'm trying to be a minimalist, but I’m a bit of a hoarder. As well as an old camera collection and crates full of vinyl, I also have a weakness for guitar pedals and designer toys.

I’m really passionate about social justice and personal development, both my own and other people’s.

I can’t really swim. I mean, I can stay afloat and thrash about until I get somewhere, but I can’t do any proper strokes. 

I grew up Spain, but haven’t been back there for 8 years now. I was homeschooled by my fundamentalist Christian parents and still struggle with a weird concept of god. I punctuate my sentences with “y’know?” and catch myself doing it all the time. It drives me insane, y’know? I find it hard to forgive myself.

I’ve been trying to read a Kurt Vonnegut book for about 6 months. 

I have flat feet and double jointed thumbs. I’m terrified of harsh fringes, and can’t look people in eyes if their eyebrows are obscured by a fringe.

If I’m bored, I eat. 

My wife is the coolest person I know, and our three kids are the most fun-loving people I’ve ever met. That said, I’ve been tired for 9 years now. We have a pet tortoise, his name is Shelldon Koopa, and if you get both cultural references there, you’re a massive geek.
