Boxpark is Shoreditch’s achingly trendy pop-up mall: a collection of shops and restaurants in a neatly-stacked pile of shipping containers. They have a series of exhibitions on their upper walkway throughout the year; the latest is by photographer Chris Brock. If you’re in the area, perhaps enjoying some Lao Street Food or attending the monthly Taxidermy Workshop (I said it was trendy) this is well worth seeing.
A finalist for Professional Photographer of the Year 2013, Brock specialises in portraiture, including editorial, fashion and advertising. He displays great flair for dramatic composition, with a dark, brooding feel to much of his work. The work on display here comes from two of Brock’s recent projects: You Should Get Out More and A Swelter of Saints.
