Photographs by Scott Wishart.

These images were inspired by the long tradition of recording tradespeople and street types in illustrations and photographs, in particular those of Irving Penn, whose work from the early fifties is the subject of the book ‘Small Trades’, the name of which we borrowed for this series.

We also borrowed: Tea towels, blankets, feather duster from Labour and Wait of Redchurch St. Market baskets and produce from Leila’s shop of Calvert Avenue.
