With his new book, The Corners, photographer Chris Dorley-Brown showcases his approach to capturing street life in East London by using multiple exposures. The resulting images not only blend different people doing their separate things - joining together different "narrative strands", in the jargon - but lends a hyper-real stage-set feel. And look - no cars!
The book is published by Hoxton Mini Press, who seem so far to have specialised in small size books. I have to say I struggle to see the point of small size photography books (though yes, they're cheaper). Their David Granick publication, The East End in Colour 1960-1980 (featured here) is a case in point. At 162 x 202mm it could have - should have - been at least half the size again. Luckily here, with The Corners, they've got it right. At a decent size, 243 x 291mm, it's a proper photography book scale, with high quality printing and production.
And it's an area I know well - so full marks from me.
