Worth a look: Simon Wheatley’s “Don’t Call Me Urban”

Simon Wheatley - Don't Call Me Urban: The Time of Grime

Simon Wheatley’s work documenting grime culture in England has long been a favorite of mine. Now, I’m happy to see that a book of the work has been published by Northumbria University Press. The website for the project is worth a look, too. You can buy the hardcover on Amazon: Don’t Call Me Urban by Simon Wheatley.

p.s. While Wheatley is no longer a member of Magnum, there’s a multimedia piece on this body of work still up on the Magnum In Motion site. Well worth a look!

p.p.s. Martin Fuch’s old New York Photo Blog still has a 2005 audio interview with Wheatley up for listening.

UPDATE (8 Feb 2011): Eleanor from Professional Photographer magazine wrote in to let us know that the magazine interviewed Wheatley about this book last year. Worth a read!
