A couple of old dodgy wholesale shops converted into a bar? Yeah, you must be in Shoreditch.
Jaguar Shoes (or DreamBagsJaguarShoes to give it it’s full title) is something of a throwback to the Nathan Barley days of Shoreditch. Two old wholesale shops converted into a bar with scruffy furniture and a sweatbox cave of a basement complete with an obligatory DJ booth, this place is the epitome of a Shoreditch bar. And it’s surprising that this place is still going strong after all these years. That’s testament to its ability to change but not necessarily evolve. Constantly changing exhibitions mean it’s walls are covered with fresh new art (when I say covered I mean COVERED from ceiling to floor) and an eclectic music policy mean local creatives still drop in for a drink or two. If you’re looking for somewhere to have a drink, some music, and a bit of art in an interesting setting, you could do far worse than dropping in here for a couple. Plus you can reminisce about the good old days of the Shoreditch Twat in his natural surroundings.

Portraiture -- a favorite among artists and photographers. Most of the traditional and classical rules are still being followed, and it take a certain level of creativity to be distinct. But here, portraitist Jordan Tiberio re-imagines old, playful aesthetics and imbues them into her photography.
Technology grows and evolves, but human nostalgia and empathy allows some of the old to wriggle into the artistic heart and be part of someone's grind and lifestyle. For photographer Julian Martin, analogue lives on.
To recreate imagination into physical works of art takes a persevering heart and patient spirit. Artist and story-teller Oleg Oprisco's photographic, visual literature of contemporary phantasms did not take an instant to be manifested in reality.
