For photographer Freya Hobb's first solo-exhibition, Scawfell Street has brought together a selection of prints that demonstrate the range and depth of her artistic practice. The series of prints emphasise Hobb's autobiographical relationship to the camera and a commitment to documenting the different relationships and environments she encounters. The exhibition presents previously unseen images that offer an insight into the artist's documentation of intimate, private and personal experiences, alongside those experienced with friends and family. Hobb's images are capable of conveying a surprising sense of familiarity and nostalgia, emanating from her use of 35mm film, creating aesthetic combinations capable of mixing detailed panoramas with domestic interiors, holiday snapshots with textured and grainy urban scenes. This creates a specific attitude, a willingness to capture both the solitude of life's individual pursuits, as well as the camaraderie and joy expressed through friendship and family.
Scawfell Street is a design house and studio community situated in Hoxton in East London. The gallery presents exhibitions and projects with artists as well as selling original artworks, artist books, and prints.
Scawfell Street serves artisan coffee and cakes and is open 830am - 4pm every day. Studios and desk spaces are available from £45 per week.
