The Dolphin, 165 Mare Street, Hackney, London, E8 3RH
Skanky late night hangout spot in Hackney.
With it’s late licence and blacked out windows, The Dolphin is truly the last resort when you’re in Hackney at the end of the evening (well there’s always The Chicken Shop instead). Massive beer garden (by London standards) and ridiculous murals adorning its walls, this grotty hideout has become a bit of an institution in east London – if you’ve been out in Hackney in the wee hours chances are you’ll end up here.
I could tell you about the music or atmosphere, however I think the rule is what happens in The Dolphin stays in The Dolphin – that or I’ve woken up branded with a dolphin stamp and plain just can’t remember how it got there.

I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
