There’s something satisfying – comforting, even – about repetition. So when local artist Mish Aminoff contacted us about a project which involved her taking the same picture from her kitchen window over the course of a year, our interest was piqued.
What made Mish take the first image? “It was noon on a day in mid October 2016,” she says, “and there was a particular light that made the red autumn leaves really stand out. I loved seeing that combination of urban nature with the graffiti on the bridge. This, for me, is a beautiful, industrial view.”
She’s not wrong. Look closely at our cover shot above – taken last December during “the most intensely colourful sunrise” – and observe how dominant the chimney is, protruding from sprawling Highgate Studios, a reminder of the area’s working past.
Elsewhere in the new issue we glimpse into the minds of other creative types inspired by north London: photographer Andy Sewell’s unusual pictures of the Heath, writer Laura Richard’s favourite pair of NW5 pubs, and a brief history of ten Camden boozers. We also report on the slew of vegan openings in Camden Market, as well as new arrivals on Chalk Farm Road and Haverstock Hill.
