Nathans Pies and Eels

May 2, 2014

To get to know my new local community and the neighbourhood I’ve started a personal project called ‘Welcome to Plaistow’. A faux advertising campaign for the E13 area capturing the institutions, characters and business that define this part of London.

The first shoot was at Nathans Pies and Eels on Barking Road. Nathans is a family business that’s serving pies and eels since 1923. Feeding generations of eastenders a visit to the shop has long been a regular feature in many West Ham fans matchday with the shop being located right outside Upton Park stadium.

However the local market for their food has shifted with the changing local population and with the upcoming move by West Ham away from Upton Park to the Olympic stadium the future of their business is in doubt.

Relocation

February 22, 2014

The London housing market has finally got the better of me and I’ve moved studios from Clapton to Plaistow, not so far geographically but much better value than buying in Hackney. I’ve built myself a new product studio and finally have a space to call my own.

Feel free to call by if you’re in the area and say hello.

This new part of town and view of the city has made me realise how much the London skyline has changed in the last few years and how much change there is to come. Being closer to the City, Canary Wharf and the Thames has given me contact with a new part of town and some new perspectives to share.
