Photographer and editor Laurence Von Thomas shot for our TRAID photography collective project focusing on Dalston High Street and its locals.

Laurence told us his experience with TRAID is linked to our Dalston store on Kingsland Road so he decided to shoot around it, taking pictures of garments picked from the shop and worn by locals, strangers and passers-by.
After choosing the item he asked the impromptu model to wear it and shot the subject walking around Dalston Kinglsand, using the high street and characteristic spots of the area as locations.

This series can therefore be seen as a tribute to Dalston, it’s people and TRAID’s charity shop.

The pictures will be exhibited on Thursday 18th December at TRAID Peckham at its first Late Night Opening: FB event
