‘DON’T CALL ME URBAN! The Time of Grime’ is a photographic record compiled over a 12 year period, focusing on the youth of London’s inner-city at a vital time, taking as its prism the genre of grime – the most significant and controversial musical expression to emerge from the UK since punk.
Grime was essentially the UK’s own authentic response to hip hop, an angst-ridden, confrontational music conveying the hopes and frustrations of an apolitical generation locked into decaying housing estates.
The book is a visual reflection of what grime represented, chronicling the conditions that spawned the genre. It is a combination of music portraiture, social documentary and architectural photography.
