Portraits of East London creatives in their spaces. Accompanied by quotes about the creative process.
Jenny Lewis spent three years in and out of studios across Hackney photographing a diverse range of artists inside their creative spaces. The project began with a portrait of fashion designer Isobel Webster and has grown organically into a 'family tree' of creatives each person nominating someone else for the book.
The result is a compelling picture of a creative community in the heart of East London at a time of great change as well as an unusual insight into the creative mind. Illustrators, filmmakers, jewellers, ceramicists and fashion designers not only invite us into their studio but also share their private thoughts about the creative process.
Lewis notes that many of those that she photographed have since been forced to leave their studios due to rent increases which are threatening so many artists in the borough. This book will stand as a reminder and celebration of the spirit of creativity in one of London's most dynamic areas.
