There’s something very ‘London’ about your images. Can you describe/explain that?

I think when you’re starting out you really have to work with what you have and celebrate it. My interest in London is less the glossy, tourist London and more the real places where people live on the outskirts. I like how one side of a street can be some fancy building that was built in 1800 and the opposite a 1960s Brutalist council block, and I like areas which look rundown and real. Where I live there’s no parking signs, and furniture left on the street and all of the kind of debris that comes with so many people packed into terraced houses. There are obviously influences in my work from magazines that focus on East London but also I think I’m also pretty influences by punk bands like The Clash and The Jam and that sort of imagery of endless houses, the West Way and brick walls.
