Neil Kenlock:

When I first started taking photographs I didn’t know about composition or style. I asked the Bailey sisters in Clapham if they wanted to pose for me. The one thing I wanted to do was to make sure all my subjects had pride in them and were not afraid of society. I never took a photo that didn’t look strong.

Markéta Luskačová:

I am quite often photographing people with a way of life that I think might not last for much longer. I want them and their way of life to be recorded… I still photograph in Brick Lane when I am in London. I have not found in London any other better place to comment on the sheer impossibility of human existence.
