Hackney Studio is a series that celebrates the diverse mixture of creative personalities in the borough. This project seeks out those individuals, not just the artists that get column inches but the whole spectrum of creatives that make up the spirit of Hackney. Rather than work from an obvious list I decided to let the subjects have control of their family tree. Each nomination selects the next, so they are all linked through a thread of mutual respect and inspiration. Established artists pick their tutors, and tutors pick their assistants so the series goes back and fourth between the unknown and the established. This lack of control makes the series exciting to work on, every nomination dramatically effects the direction the series takes. Hackney is still full of creatives working down side alleys, tucked behind residential streets, in old factories and warehouses aswell as new studio commuinities. Its possibly the last chance to celebrate Hackneys artistic commuinity 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 detrious before the slate is wiped clean and a block of flats takes its place.

 

I have lived in Hackney for twenty years and find myself being drawn to working on projects inspired by my commuinity. Another Hackney based project that i have been working on is One Day Young capturing mothers in their own homes within twenty four hours of the birth. That five year long investigation into the domestic, led to my curiosity of the creative workspaces of the borough.
