Hidden Creatives is a portrait exhibition which explores the creative diversity in the Blackhorse Lane Creative Enterprise Zone (CEZ) (Link to CEZ page). For this project photographer, Andy Donohoe was tasked with exploring the different corners of the district to find creatives which demonstrated the broad mix of practices and technical backgrounds. The images have been printed in large format and have been exhibited throughout the CEZ in public places.

I studied for a creative degree and had access to the design workshop where I learnt how to use wood working tools. 

I like the creative push Blackhorse Lane has going, however, I’m worried that gentrification had alienated the existing community that have lived there a long time.
