This months issue of Dazed and Confused magazine asks 'Is East London Dead?' They interviewed all sorts of creative people local to the area: artists, fashion designers, illustrators, artists, musicians, independent labels....and loads more.
In light of the forthcoming olympics the changing landscape, rising rents and the future for creatives in East London is a forefront issue.
We were delighted to be invited by Dazed to take part! They came to A-side B-side to take the pic back in Feb, an off the cuff decision by brilliant photgrapher Jamie hawkesworth led to myself and Catherine being photographed with all the builders and electricians working at Hackney Downs Studios at the time. (Thanks to all the builders who agreed to be in it!)
The issue is out in the shops now, you can read the full interview on Dazed Digital
Following this we were asked onto Dazed's live radio show with Strongroom Alive, we were interviewed by deputy editor Tim Noakes, you can listen to it on the Strongroom Alive site (we are on around 1.12 or so...)
The same show also features Dazed editor Rod Stanley discussing the thinking behind the issue and Theo Mass, the masked cover star. (he had swapped his diamante mask for THIS AMAZING gold number).
