While in London recently, I came across part of Jeremy Freedman’s three venue exhibition, Spitalfields Market Portraits at Agnès B., 16 Lamb Street, Spitalfields. The photographic portraits tell the stories of the traders in the Spitalfields Antiques Market.
Freedman’s sensitivity to his subjects perhaps stems from his family’s history in the area. His ancestors came to Spitalfields from Holland in the eighteenth century, his great-great-great-great grandfather was one of the founders of Sandys Row Synagogue in 1854. Spitalfields Life presented his debut exhibition as a celebration of this unique neighbourhood at the heart of London.
