Pip recently worked with acclaimed London based musician Ben Khan. Pip’s photographs of Khan were used by VICE in his first ‘proper’ interview, in which he explains his desire for privacy and control of his exposure.

The photos feature a intricately patterned and hand stitched backdrop made and sent over by Khan’s father, a silk-maker from Kashmir.
Clash Magazine named him one to watch in 2014.
