Handmade London is a photo project showcasing some of the capital's expanding artisan scene. Increasingly disillusioned with mass-produced goods from far away places, we are starting to care more about how and where the things we buy are made. In response, London is seeing a resurgence in traditional crafts and things made the old fashioned way. From salmon smokers to bicycle frame makers to glass blowers, I have tried to show a small fraction of that skill and creativity in this series.
