East London blog Spitalfields Life recently featured the work of Bob Mazzer, an Aldgate local who used his late-night commute as an opportunity to photograph the colourful scenarios he encountered on the city's underground.
The collection of photographs ranges from the everyday to the absurd, with Bob reflecting; “you don’t think you are starting a project, but one day you look back over your recent pictures and there are a dozen connected images, and you realise it is the beginning of a project – and then you fall in love with it.”

We recently came across the work of photographer George Plemper, whose A Moment in Time series captures British youth culture in the late 70s and early 80s. The documentary project is largely set around the estates and community centres of Woolwich and Thamesmead, with the photographer shooting hundreds of portraits of the young people he encountered day to day.

Speaking of the project, George mentions that he wasn't originally sure what to do with the images, admitting that his "negatives and photographs sat mouldering in the back of my garage for 30 years before the wonders of the digital age allowed me to rescue them." The series has received a brilliant response on photo-sharing site flickr, as well as being mentioned on several blogs.

The Chelsea Futurespace Gallery presents Four Decades, an exhibition of prints by iconic British artist and former Fred Perry collaborator Sir Peter Blake. Known as one of the figureheads of the British Pop Art movement, Blake’s work takes influence from the realms of pop culture, literature, music and contemporary art.

Included in the exhibition are Blake’s series of Appropriated Alphabets, Alice in Wonderland, and The Butterfly Man, as well as portraits of musicians Chuck Berry, Ian Dury and The Clash. Covering forty years of the artist’s work, the exhibition explores the diversity and dexterity that allows it to transcend the divisions between fine art and pop culture.
Four Decades will run at Chelsea Futurespace until 28th July, 2013.
