“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine. Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
Photographer Paul Trevor has been documenting the East End for over 25 years. This new book of black-and-white close-ups, made spontaneously on the streets of east London, capture Britain’s perennial social divide. They contrast the people in The City – London’s money market – with those in the nearby street market of Brick Lane. Paul Trevor shot these images between 1977 and 1992 – but mostly in the 80s, provoked by Thatcherism and a polarised debate on market forces vs community values. The imagery is as fresh and relevant today as it was then. ‘This series is a new twist on the street photo, but totally unlike anything I have seen before or since.’ – Martin Parr Hoxton Mini Press
