Travellers Children in London Fields

O’Brien, Colin
Format: Hardback

72 pages


These pictures record an extraordinary meeting between a photographer and a group of Irish Travellers’ children in London Fields in 1987, yet the subject of Colin O’Brien’s tender and clear-eyed photographs is no less than the elusive drama of childhood itself. The first publication by Spitalfields Life Books, the offshoot of the acclaimed culture blog Spitalfields Life, takes a set of humorous and poetic images that won acclaim on the internet and transforms them into a classically-produced photography book designed by Friedericke Huber, presenting Colin O Brien s pictures in an artful sequence to create a distinctive title of wide appeal.
