Brick Lane Street | Photographer: Serge Bouvet

Brick Lane Street | Photographer: Serge Bouvet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Brick Lane is a street in East London, England, in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It runs from Swanfield Street in the northern part of Bethnal Green, crosses Bethnal Green Road, passes through Spitalfields and is linked to Whitechapel High Street to the south by the short stretch of Osborn Street. Today, it is the heart of the city's Bangladeshi-Sylheti community and is known to some as Banglatown. It is famous for its many curry houses and the graffiti's artists. The French photographer Serge Bouvet stayed 3 hours in this street to shoot the lovely pedestrians.

In my country | Photographer: Daniel Stier

In my country | Photographer: Daniel Stier | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"In My Country is a contemporary portrait of London, told through its incredibly diverse population. As the next host of the Olympic Games in 2012 the world’s eyes will be upon London, but the world is already here: 40% of all Londoners were not born in the UK. This phenomenon is the starting point of In My Country - a series of portraits depicting immigrants living in London.

 

In each portrait Pakistanis, Poles, Ghanaians, Indians, Peruvians all don their national dress. The dress serves as a symbol of their cultural heritage and lends their portraits a timeless quality.. All of the subjects pose within their own familiar surroundings, backdrops of everyday life: a neighborhood street, a dining room, a front porch. Indicative of a unique cultural heritage, the traditional costume is visually confronted against the urban chaos of London. In a globalized world which tends to flatten anything distinctive, such clothing comes to represent a bastion of cultural resistance and an assertion of identity."

 

This series by London-based photographer Daniel Stier will be exhibited at Stour Space from October 5-29, 2012 as part of the Photomonth East London Photography Festival.

Mr and Mrs Teavee | Photographer: Nadia Lee Cohen

Mr and Mrs Teavee | Photographer: Nadia Lee Cohen | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Nadia Lee Cohen is a 22-year-old London-based photographer currently going for a BA in photography at the London College of Fashion. Eye-popping and delightful, Cohen’s photographs channel motifs of Americana and Britain from the 1950s, 60s and 70s; melodramatic hair and make-up, saturated colors, and the characters to fit. She is a master of setting the scene, styling her subjects and incorporating her own props which she spends plenty of time collecting.

This year, Cohen was selected for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition. Her photograph, American Nightmare, is on display at the National Portrait Gallery through February 8, 2013.
