The diversity that is London is what makes it so. Despite the amount of time I spend here, the city ceases to amaze me. Recently, whilst shooting with my photographer, Roberta, in East Croydon, we discovered the new Box Park and stumbled into a shot that might as well have been taken in New York. An emerging area, surrounded by constant construction and growth, Croydon signifies the ever gentrifying city. At it’s core is Box Park, where independent retailers offer everything from arincini to coffee, all in one cool space developed to bring street fashion and food together. I am determined to spend more time jumping outside of my usual little London world and exploring further afield when I’m here.. any ideas? xHermione.
