Queen of Hoxton Exhibition

All photos are under copyright and belong to George P Ramsay

It must have been early last year, perhaps even the year before that; I must find out in any case. A friend, Hunter Skipworth, and I were asked to shoot twenty photographs for a new bar, the Queen of Hoxton, found between Bishopsgate and Hoxton.

I’d never been so fortunate before this, and I became rather unstuck in the preparation for the opening night. It was a tough deadline. That said, despite the problematic mounting of the photos on the wall and all others worries, it was great fun  – and highly rewarding.

We decided to shoot both in black and white and colour.I took the black and white, and this is the result (some of which I am unsure, but we were only novices).

They are still on show and are available to purchase.
