STORIES FROM A CITY
ISSUE #5 LONDON
For the fifth and final issue of 2014 the Out Here team were exploring and discovering their home city; London. Being already so familiar with this incredible city we didn’t really know where to start. As is so common with the city you live in, it isn’t very often you are compelled to explore what is hidden within it. This issue aims to uncover the city that all Londoners think they know so well.
STORIES FROM ISSUE #5 / LONDON
D*Face is a subversive multimedia artist with an eye for the controversial. Using recognisable forms of consumerist advertising and splicing them with comic-book style artistry, he challenges how we think about everything from religion to consumerism.
Matt Bromley is an illustrator and skate nut. 3 years ago he started what would turn out to be every skaters dream; his own skate company. 3 years later, he has a range of decks and a growing reputation.
Billingsgate is London’s oldest wholesale food market. It is also on the edge of drastic change. Having already been moved way out west, nestled amongst the banking high rises, its also being forced to cope with a multitude of forces.
HOXTON MINI PRESS
Hoxton Mini Press is quickly becoming one of the most successful independent publishers in London. With their published titles increasing year on year and their tongue-in-cheek approach to East London life, its unsurprising they’re doing so well.
GRANT MUSEUM OF ZOOLOGY
The last university zoology museum in London, the Grant Museum is one of London’s hidden gems. Full of oddities, curiosities, and anatomically perfect specimens, this museum will fascinate you for a good few hours. Their collection of mounted slides are particularly beautiful.
With 88 football pitches side by side, the Marshes are a cradle for grassroots football in London. On a typical Sunday these pitches will be bursting with the shouts, tackles and shots from the many participants in the Hackney and Leyton Sunday League.
Here are just a few of the places in London that left an impression on us. Including the largest collection of natural history specimens in Europe, the best London pub owned by the best British brewery, and the most extensive array of art/fashion/just plain great magazines and books in London.
