“A celebration of the energy and creativity at work in the East End. This is a joyous, inspirational, heart-warming book.” Nigel Slater
East London has become the most exciting place to eat in the UK. Home to a vibrant and diverse community, it has attracted a wave of fresh gastronomic talent, including top chefs, young producers and bold entrepreneurs. This book follows forty people at the heart of a culinary phenomenon — from Michelin-starred chefs and specialist butchers to wild foragers and urban beekeepers. With in-depth interviews and lavish photography, East London Food guides you on where to go, what to eat and how to cook it at home.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Enter the private world of a group of Travellers living beneath the Westway, London’s vast elevated highway connecting suburbia to the city. Part of a unique culture so often stigmatised in the media, this close-knit community is under increasing pressure to move on and risk losing their identity for good. Here is their story.
Paul's documentary photographs are accompanied by text detailing his experience including how he gained access to this otherwise closed group.
Paul Wenham-Clarke is an Association of Photographers Gold Award winner and a Professor of Photography at Arts University Bournemouth where he is the MA Photography course leader. His work is the result of a desire to communicate social and environmental issues that he feels passionately about, whether it is the loss of human and animal life on our roads, the plight of our homeless, or, as in this book, a community fighting to protect its cultural identity.
This is the first edition.

From Blackpool to Brighton, and Barry Island to Brightlingsea, these richly-detailed photographs capture the candyfloss colours and faded nostalgia of a seaside culture that is peculiarly (yet wonderfully) British.

Book 5 in the series 'Vintage Britain'
This book is also available in a special book + limited edition print bundle. Click here to see them.
Following our hugely popular The East End in Colour 1960-1980 by David Granick, this new book by a different photographer, Tim Brown, picks up the story in 1980 as East London enters an extraordinary decade of transformation. Focusing on the Docklands and the further reaches of the East End, Tim took these pictures on 35mm film between shifts of driving trains on London Underground's Central Line.
Tim began taking photos in 1980, around the same time that he started a 20-year stint working on London Underground. He was a Central Line train driver for 13 years and lived in East London for over 20 before moving to Essex with his wife and two children. The book features an introduction by Chris Dorley-Brown, editor of the book, and an interview between Chris and Tim.
