British photographer Jake Green’s authentic & sensitive documentary approach allows him to uncover new narratives and shoot subjects in engaging and emotive ways.
He discovered photography as a teenager and has constantly explored and advanced his talent over many years thanks to inspiring commissions – and pure love of the creative process. In 2012 he set up ‘Leyton of London’ a small press & creative production studio in East London.
These subjects might be his home city – London – the subject of the Pie & Mash London book series, now in its third edition. Or self-initiated coffee projects like the captivating Drink My Sweat series that follows the global trade and movement of coffee. With these passion projects he takes his time and builds the story over a number of years. Observing the people and moments that matter and sharing them with a global audience. His books and prints are available online at L.O.L Books.
Jake also works with global brands on commissions and collaborations. These include Nike, Apple, Barbican, The Guardian, Google, Phaidon, Warner, HSBC, Sony, Vodafone & Converse.
