Curated by collaborators Brickhouse, namely Guy Gormley and Thomas Bush. Portraits are taken by Alex Sturrock, photographer of choice for the music and film industry, Nan Goldin protégé and currently Photo Editor at large for Vice magazine.
Words are by the Gentle Author, author of the best selling Spitalfields Life book and hugely popular blog who has written about his contribution here.
