Professor Green unleashes powerful visuals for ‘Photographs’

MC Professor Green has released emotional visuals for single ‘Photographs’, featuring Rag’n’Bone Man.

The video, directed by Simon Emmett, came after Green called on fans to share photos of their loved ones they had lost and share their stories with the hashtags #wishthatitookmorephotosofus. The response was huge and some of the fans were actually featured in the video, which made the song even more powerful due to the real-life stories.

The emotion-fueled video begins with 2 people telling their stories about the death of loved ones. The visuals proceed with a continuous slideshow of pictures behind Green as he tells us how he wished he had taken more pictures with his loved ones, and how a lack of pictures can leave you with regret as he wishes ‘he has something to hold on to’. We feel every ounce of his grief in the video as the track touches on heavy topics like addiction and death.

Green has launched a petition on Change.org, calling on the government to implement a ‘national grief day’, alongside Crus Bereavement Care, which will allow people a specific day devoted to the pain of grief and allow people to publically mourn on this day. The day would educate society on how grief and mourning, and how grief can have an effect on people.
