Brixton People – Part 2

Written by on July 21, 2017 in Art, Brixton People - Comments Off on Brixton People – Part 2


Photographer Carole Evans has published 110 striking portraits of people who popped into her pop-up studio in Brixton market last weekend.

You can see them all, including some well-known Brixton people, on her dedicated website.

It was her second visit to a much-changed market. Her first Brixton People portraits were created in 2010.

In a message to people who took part, Carole said: “Many, many thanks for stopping to have your picture taken in my pop-up photography studio in Brixton Market on 14 or 15 July.

“Over the two days, I photographed about 110 people, which creates an amazing addition to the Brixton People project.”

If you took part and would like a digital copy of your portrait, contact Carole at with a brief description of yourself and what you were wearing on the day you were photographed. She will find your portrait and email it to you.

Those who declined to be on the website, but who would like to see their picture, can also get in touch.

She is urging everybody to share the project on social media with the hashtag #brixtonpeople.

Carole is hoping to exhibit the portraits or create a book from them.
