Vol.5 No.1 features an exclusive section dedicated to English stories – by photographers working in their home country and those documenting a new breed of Englishness abroad. The features in this special section include:


Photographer Ewen Spencer looks at Grime culture in London and the lifestyle and fashion of the young devotees of this music scene.

Survival Programmes

In the 1970s a group of photographers, including Chris Steele-Perkins, undertook a mass observation study on the working classes throughout Britain. The project is this year being added to the public archive of the British Library. 


Andrew Buurman discovers a community of green thumb allotment owners in Birmingham and how this English past-time can come to define a diverse people.

Baghdad Garage

A group of English ex-servicemen are discreetly working in a garage in Baghdad fixing cars within the Green Zone. Stuart Griffiths bunked in with the boys, attempting to assess job satisfaction.

Last Witch

The last witch trial in England is still widely discussed in the village that Rod Shone recently moved to. He captured the landscape in which the trial occurred.
