Book 7 from the series 'East London Photo Stories'
‘Columbia Road’ by Johanna Neurath. 96pp hardcover, quarter-bound, gold foiled,199 x 139 mm
This book is also available to buy as a Collector's Edition here.
East London photographer Johanna Neurath has ventured down Hackney’s Columbia Road nearly every Sunday for the past ten years to visit its flower market. Rather than depicting the obvious prettiness of people and their flowers Neurath turns her attention to the colour and pattern left behind as the market clears out, focussing on strangely beautiful displays in gutters, hazy reflections in windows and the abstract forms created by fag butts and polystyrene cups strewn across the road.
This book fuses still life and street photography to celebrate the beauty and chaos of one of East London's most famous markets.
Johanna Neurath can proudly say that she was born within the sound of Bow bells and has been a Hackney citizen for all of her adult life. Design Director at an international art book publishers and a self-confessed image junkie, type nerd and bibliophile, she has worked in publishing for more than 25 years as a book designer, picture editor, typographer and commissioning editor. On high days and holidays she takes her own street photographs. This is the first book of her own images.

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.

'The East End in Colour 1980-1990', 128pp, cloth spine, 156mm x 196mm. Edited by Chris Dorley-Brown.
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.
