Alex Shipp, Creative Mum – Hackney Wick, East London
I used to live next door to Alex and Oliver and the first time I saw their place I thought it was the most amazing flat I’d ever been too. It used to be where a porn company stored all their film (mine was where the filming used to take place). It’s a great open plan space in an old warehouse building in East London, home to many creative people. Oliver is an Art Director, working on films dressing the sets so takes the opportunity to bring back many of the props with him when the shoot is over, hence the amazing collection of stuff. He would always be coming home with something random and cool like an old record player or ventriloquist dummy. Oliver was working on a film in Guadeloupe when I took these photos but Alex and Lyra were there to show me around.
