“‘Up My Street’ is an on-going series of portraits of shops and shopkeepers in and around my home. I’ve lived in Tufnell Park and Archway since I moved to London in ‘98 and have been passing the same shops and people pretty much every day since.
What started as a polite nod from Mamood at Quicksilver gradually turned into a beaming smile and a wave. This went hand in hand with a growing sense of familiarity and belonging to the community as Highgate Slopes (Slops) became home. Mamood sparked my interest in the local shops and characters of Junction Road. As they look out and we look in, two worlds divided by the glass of their shop window.” – Dylan Collard
