Pieces of Dalston
A Typographic Journey in East London
Everything looks so much moreinteresting close up. A day of photography in the beautiful, not so hiddenparts of East London resulted in the admiration of all the wonderfully old andfading typography that this part of London has to offer. The project high-lightedall the "normal" things that we don’t ever take the time to look at.For example road markings that we don't really use anymore because we are soused to them being around, store signs etc.

Pieces of Dalston looks at what makes Dalston, Dalston.The raw, the rough, the normal. This was a book project, which I decided tocreate as single slabs, like pavements. Essentially, this book can be seenalmost like a puzzle, because to me, that’s what Dalston is; a puzzle ofcomplexity and mixed cultures. There are two sides to each slap; one side iscolourless, greys and grim-ish, while the other side is coloured, bold andbusy. One side is orderly-ish, the other side isn't. Just like Dalston, organisedchaos.
