Photo of the Day: Work Places of Creative People

British photographer Jenny Lewis captured artist's work spaces in London’s East End.

British Photographer Jenny Lewis created the project Hackney Studio (Hackney is a Borough of London) featuring creative Londoners who live in the East End, and their work places. After living there herself for 20 years, Lewis came to the conclusion that the personalities in her neighborhood were responsible for the East End’s vibrant artistic atmosphere. Each project participant named the next participant. Some artists picked their teachers, and teachers picked their assistants.

“It’s possibly the last chance to celebrate Hackneys artistic community before the gentrification of the area chases everyone to new pastures. In fact since I started the series a number of the artists involved have been forced to move. The borough is evolving so quickly it sometimes feels like historical documentation, recording the way things once were, capturing a studio with the twenty or so years build up of detritus before the slate is wiped clean and a block of flats takes its place,” writes Lewis.
