After a fantastic start that saw our first title - about Joseph, the old man - all but sell out in two months we are excited to announce our next books for Spring. Both are due out in May, both by acclaimed East London photographers. 

East London Swimmers - Madeleine Waller

The first of our new books is by Madeleine Waller (96pp, hardback) and reveals the secret life of Hackney swimmers who brave all conditions to escape city life. Images are taken at the London Fields Lido and are combined with telling personal quotes.

"I got into swimming after getting caught up in the tsunami in Thailand. I was on a family holiday when the wave came in and I managed to grab my son from his pram. When I returned home I had a fear of open water so I entered a race and my passion for swimming was born. Last year I swam from Spain to Morocco. Next I'm swimming from Robben Island to Cape Town".

A Portrait of Hackney - Zed Nelson

The second book is by Zed Nelson, an internationally acclaimed documentary photographer (96pp, hardback) and portrays the ever-changing face of Hackney: the complexity, the contradictions, the clash of cultures. Portraits and landscapes are set against overheard snippets of conversations in the area. Zed Nelson has lived his whole life in Hackney - it was here he learnt to ride a bike, took his furt drugs and lost his virginity. When he was young this was a place to get away from but now he has fallen back in love with the area.
