In Your Face is a series of spontaneous close-ups made unobserved on the streets of London between 1977 and 1992. The work contrasts the Brick Lane street market with London’s money market, the City, a mile away.
“The idea was to say something about the two places without having to show what people did. The story would be in people’s faces. Requiring a close-range approach, the project involved me in a new way of making photographs.” – Paul Trevor
The bulk of the series was shot in the 1980’s. The work includes some images from an initial experiment in 1977, and from the final period in the early 90’s.
