by the gentle author

Nik Strangelove‘s father’s family originated from Bow but Nik first came to Brick Lane to take photographs in 1993, when he was studying photography, as picture editor of The London Student. In 1997, Nik returned under commission to photograph Brick Lane for the Express on Sunday but these pictures were never published and are revealed for the first time here today.

    Brings back so many memories. I scrawled that graffiti on the wall in the days when we had to campaign against the BNP.

    I know this talented man’s work well, and he never fails to impress. This is a special collection, and it’s found a good home.
