Once Upon a Timein Brick Lane
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
Glorious street photographs taken in London’s East End during the 70s and 80s. Paul Trevor, one of the great unsung heroes of British documentary photography, spent many years during the 70s and 80s capturing life on Brick Lane, London’s most iconic East End street. These images, full of humour, grit, love and surprise, capture a vibrant time before the area went through dramatic social change. ‘...looking at Paul’s photographs, you can see all the special, fleeting, human moments... With the flick of a shutter, at the perfect time, these people live again. Even in monochrome, there is so much life.’ - Alan Gilbey.
