Hoxton Mini Press is 5! Hoxton Mini Press is five years old and we’re as excited as a young child. We’re as enthusiastic as ever to produce beautiful photography books that appeal to everyone, not just stuffy art buyers, and at prices all people can afford. We bring energy and disruption to the market, if the occasional splash of spilt milk. In keeping with this we are thrilled to be publishing Paradise Street: The lost art of playing outside - photographs of children playing on British streets in an era when parents still trusted it was safe to do so. After the runaway success of our previous book The East End in Colour, this will be part of a new series called ‘Vintage Britain’ dedicated to nostagic documentary pictures taken in the UK. This year we are up for more awards to add to the others we have collected on the tiny wooden shelf under which our two dogs sit: we are nominated for two gongs at The British Book and Production Awards (we won last year for Best Series Design). As the world goes virtual we believe that the physical book is more important than ever. We love what we do, we hope you do too. Martin Usborne and Ann Waldvogel Founders, East London

Urban Gypsies Paul Wenham-Clarke

A rare look inside a close-knit community of travellers living under the A40 flyover in London. This is Book 9 in the series ‘Tales from the City’. The Westway is, for most of us, a mundane and ugly slab of tarmac, a facilitator to get to a destination (it connects London to south England’s major motorways) – but for a group of travellers it’s the roof of their home. Paul Wenham-Clarke spent many months gaining the trust of the community’s leaders for unrivalled access to this otherwise secret world. His resulting portraits, taken at parties, weddings and in homes, are intimate, arresting and at times strangely comic. They reveal how strong and unique the identity of these people are, even when surrounded by the sweeping currents of London. Paul Wenham-Clarke has been a professional photographer for over 30 years, working for commercial and advertising clients, but now he focuses on documentary projects, many of which have won awards. He is also professor of photography at the Arts University Bournemouth.

Miami Beach 1988-1995 Barry Lewis

Black and white photographs that capture the colourful characters of Miami Beach in the early 90s. Each Christmas between 1988 and 1995, photographer Barry Lewis travelled to South Beach, Miami, to trade the harsh London winter for a tropical paradise. There he photographed the diverse (and eccentric) people who made up the community: fashionistas, newly-arrived Cubans (following the Meriel exodus in 1980), Jewish retirees from New York, drag queens and the gay population who flocked to ultra-cool Ocean Drive for the party scene. Lewis’ images capture the vibrancy of an area coming back to life after years of crime, drugs and violence. The photos are accompanied by quotes from Lewis’ subjects. Barry Lewis is a London-based photographer and filmmaker. He has worked internationally for books and magazines from Life to National Geographic. As well as photo-journalism and portraiture, he has directed over 20 documentaries, commercials and art films. His work has been exhibited at the V&A, Museum of London and The Photographers’ Gallery.

New Girl Order Iain Mckell

A fashion photographer has identified an emerging sub-culture in a band of female artists in North London. Photographer Iain McKell, well known for documenting new cultural trends and subcultures, befriended a tribe of young female artists and spent two years capturing their lives in and around a shared warehouse in Tottenham. His resulting photographs depict a hedonistic lifestyle of freedom and creative expression. Calling themselves ‘the sisterhood’, the characters McKell met together form a fierce army of women who are free from cultural restraints. Iain McKell is a British fashion, portrait and social documentary photographer with a particular interest in underground sub-societies, as seen in his previous book, The New Gypsies, published by Prestel in 2011. McKell’s work has been featured in Vogue Italia and i-D among others. This is his fourth photography book.

Paradise Street The lost art of playing outside Nostalgic photographs that celebrate the lost freedom of children playing on the street. This is Book 4 in the series ‘Vintage Britain’. Half a century ago, ‘playing out’ was expected of British kids who came together, in all weathers, to run, jump, skip, swing, kick, fight and climb – usually unsupervised. With growing fears over children’s vulnerability in modern society much of this has been lost. Paradise Street brings together the work of seven photographers including Shirley Baker,

Martin O’Neill and Paul Kaye, most who lived and worked among the people they photographed. Spanning the early 30s to the late 1970s, these black-and-white images are a celebration of community, trust and friendship, showing how attitudes towards children’s safety have shifted over the 20th century. Photographers: Shirley Baker, Paul Kaye, Robin Dale, John Gay, Henry Grant and David Lewis Hodgson. All images are from the archives of Mary Evans Picture Library.

London’s Square Mile A Secret City Polly Braden & David Kynaston

Street photographs that capture the strange but influential heart of London’s historic financial district. This is Book 8 in the series ‘Tales from the City’ London’s Square Mile – also known as the City of London – is both well-known and little known. Millions pass through or work within its winding alleyways and cobbled passages but few are truly aware of its vast power and significance. The City is a self-contained kingdom at the core of global finance, one so important it boasts its own Lord Mayor and police force. Its history is rich and complex with repercussions that are all too real today. Together with text written by world-renowned historian David Kynaston, these ethereal photographs of people captured amongst imposing architecture begin to decode one of the most influential and cryptic parts of London. Polly Braden is a British documentary photographer who explores the relationship between everyday life, work, leisure and economics. This is her fourth photography book. David Kynaston is an esteemed historian who has written over 18 books, including the acclaimed four-volume The City of London (1994–2001).

Dog Show 1961-1978 Shirley Baker

Vintage photographs of British dog shows back when the humans’ hairstyles were just as groomed. This is Book 3 in the series ‘Vintage Britain’. These playful photographs capture the quirkiness of owners and their canine companions at one of the most quintessentially British events: the dog show. From Pekingese to Poodles, Beagles to

Bulldogs, these images highlight not just the best in show but the eccentricity of the British obsession for dogs. They reveal how nothing has really changed besides the owners’ primped hairdos and their dated clothing; the dogs are timeless. Shirley Baker (1932 – 2014) was a British documentary and street photographer. She grew up in Manchester and had an extensive career in photography, exhibiting her work in galleries across Europe.

The Crash Stephen McLaren

Ten years since the financial crash, these searing street photographs cast a critical eye over the heart of London. Book 14 in our ‘East London Photo Stories’ series. Published to mark the 10th anniversary of the 2008 global financial crisis, these photographs capture surreal and tense times on the streets of the City of London, the heart of the world economy. Shooting during the crash and its aftermath, McLaren documents a city in flux as a tumultuous sequence of events rolls through the Square Mile: bail-outs, job losses, anti-capitalist protests, a recession, and after a few years, the controversial re-starting of bonuses. This visual record of those uncertain times is characterised by the photographer’s sharp and satirical eye. Stephen McLaren is a photographer, writer and curator specialising in street photography. Scottish born but based in Los Angeles, McLaren has exhibited his own work numerous times in the UK and has curated exhibitions in LA and San Francisco.

Peter Zelewski Powerful portraits of identical twins reveal unnerving similarities, subtle differences and unbreakable bonds. Award-winning photographer Peter Zelewski has spent the last four years capturing the faces and stories of identical twins. Some inexplicably lost their hearing at the exact same time, others unlock each others’phones with their indistinguishable

fingerprints, but perhaps more surprisingly, some don’t get on. Appearing alongside personal quotes, Zelewski’s portraits tap into one of the most fascinating of all human relationships. Peter Zelewski is an American-born, London-based photographer well known for his contemporary street portraiture. His unique style has earned him a place in numerous publications and his work has been shown at the National Portrait Gallery.

Bored Tourists Laurence Stephens

A playful look at the disappointment of being a tourist on a banal holiday. Bored Tourists explores the phenomenon of travelling to a foreign country with every intention of being inspired by it, only to be left feeling bemused, disappointed, bored or half asleep. Taken in Spain and Portugal, and shot in square format as a subtle nod to our current ‘Instagram generation’, these amusing images present an unforgiving vision of the tourist experience. Warning: this book contains a lot of selfie sticks. Laurence Stephens is a British documentary photographer. He is inspired by colour photographers of the 1980s, and uses flash and saturated colours to enhance the comedic quality of his images. Stephens has a degree in documentary photography and focuses his time on projects in the UK and abroad.

The Isle of Dogs Before the Big Money Mike Seaborne

This is Book 2 in the series ‘Vintage Britain’.

His black-and-white photographs reveal an eerily desolate landscape which would soon be home to financial heavyweights and epic skyscapers like Canary Wharf. They show an area of East London now almost beyond recognition, just before the money moved in.

When Mike Seaborne began photographing the Isle of Dogs in the early ’80s he was struck by how it retained its traditional industrial character, despite the effects of Thatcher’s reign.

Mike Seaborne has been photographing London since 1979. He was Senior Curator of Photographs at the Museum of London until 2011 and now focuses on personal photographic projects.

A rare documentation of London’s docklands at a time just before the financial transformation.

Spencer Murphy

Susannah Ray

Whatever their ride – dirt bikes, quads, mopeds – tearing up tarmac and pulling stunts on industrial estates or city streets is self-expression. In the face of the law and hostile public, they are united by a passion and a way of life that few outsiders appreciate. Acclaimed photographer Spencer Murphy lifts the lid on London’s most misunderstood subculture, capturing the style and attitude of a movement that is life or death for its followers.

New York City is defined by water, yet many of its shorelines are largely unknown. These lyrical photographs, inspired by a Walt Whitman poem, take us on a seasonal journey past sheltered bays, under great bridges and over deep rivers to give us a moving perspective on a megacity we thought we knew so well.

East London Food

Badly Repaired Cars

Rosie Birkett & Helen Cathcart

Ronni Campana

East London has become the most exciting place to eat in the UK. Home to a vibrant and diverse community, it has attracted a wave of gastronomic talent, including top chefs, young producers and bold entrepreneurs. This book, written by Rosie Birkett with photography by Helen Cathcart, follows 40 people at the heart of a culinary phenomenon: from Michelin-starred chefs and specialist butchers to foragers and beekeepers.

These colourful close-ups of cars held together by tape and string show the best (or worst) in auto DIY and elevate broken Bentleys and bashed bonnets into something akin to abstract art.
