Book of the Month: Hackney Studios by Jenny Lewis
April 06, 2017
Kreuzberg. Belleville. Brooklyn. Every city has their own prolific neighbourhood of productivity. For London, it's the borough of Hackney — a place photographer Jenny Lewis has called home for the past two decades.
Her latest piece comes in the form of a hardback photo book, published by the always-fantastic Hoxton Mini Press. Hackney Studios captures the creative individuals of East London and the spaces that inspire and nurture their craft. The book itself sits on a foundation of recommendations, with each featured artist suggesting another to add to the roster.
Featured in the publication is a printed version of this family tree, highlighting the importance of every individual and their contribution to these pages. Lewis’ beautifully assembled book revolves around the idea of community, inspiration, and the passion of doing something you love and has earned a well-deserved place on the Lagom shelf. Hackney Studios is available for purchase online or at any of Hoxton Mini Press’ stockists.
