Dazed & Confused May Issue tries to find where the creative area of the capital goes to.
"With the arrival of the Olympics in east London, the world's attention has turned to the creative
heartland of the capital. What does this mean for the artists, designers, musicians and publishers
making their mark here, who face rising rents and an endlessly increasing variety of artisanal coffee?
Dazed & Confused surveys those living and working in its own back yard, and asks 'Is East London Dead?' Inside, photographer Jamie Hawkesworth documents over 20 emerging talents from the worlds of
music, fashion, art, photography and literature, while we talk to artists, writers and venue owners
for their insights into how the area has evolved, and the challenges it faces"
