Hackney based photographer Jørn Tomter has been documenting the Chatsworth Road area where he lives since 2007 but after last summer’s riots, he decided to step it up a gear. Aiming to give a face and voice to the neighbourhood he photographed local people, business and shops and the project has now come together in a new website. To celebrate the launch, Jørn is throwing a party on Saturday March 3 at 33 Chatsworth Road (the old dentists) from 6-10pm with music, homemade cake, local food and BYOB. As well as regularly updating the site, Jørn is also planning to host a pop-up photography studio to get local youth involved and teach them about photography. Pop down and show your support.
