    "Review of 'Street Fashion' by Luke Aveil" Living in east London myself I found this book very relevant. What I noticed straight away when I moved here was the how people have a very individual sense of style and fashion. In most parts of London the fashion sense of the general public is very similar, they are all subjected to the same advertising and marketing and on a whole are surrounded by the same shops. For these reason it is no surprise that there are reoccurring fashion trends throughout the population. On a whole the people that have made the area around Shoreditch ‘the place to be’ are arty types that fled the west end and rising rent prices to set up studio apartments in and around the city. Thanks to the nature of these people’s professions they brought with them a sense of individuality to the area that is most apparent in their sense of style and the way they dress. The book Amanda has made shows a varied selection of how people dress in this up and coming part... More > of London. The book starts with a short paragraph of text explaining a bit about what the book contains and why. After this there are 13 double page spreads, however it is only the right hand page that contains any images. Each of these pages bar one contains to separate full bleed images of people Amanda has gone up to on the street and photographed. I do not think the images are intended to be view in and particular order like that of a series but are grouped together, and a book being an effective way of grouping a body of work together. I like how one side of the double page spreads are kept blank; this gives the book quite minimalist appearance, which is quite a contrast to how some of the subjects are dressed. As I mentioned previously Amanda has chosen a selection of photographs that give a broad range and show the various fashion styles of the time. The only thing I feel the book is lacking is more text. It would have been quite nice if she had interviewed her subjects and included some of what they said along side their photographs, even if it took up some of the negative space of the double page spreads. On the whole a very visually pleasing book that has well thought out content made up of well shot photographs.< Less
