King’s Affair 2017

King’s Affair is a bit different from the other Colleges May Balls and Garden Parties, in that the dress code is a bit more liberal. This year’s theme was “Uncanny Valley”, which refers to the unease or revulsion caused by near human-like objects. The majority of the guests at King’s Affair were dressed accordingly, with everything from West World characters to the Sims.

I photographed King’s Affair together with Christiana Smyrilli, who helped me with the flashing of the guests. Here are some of my favourite photos from the night.
