Peter Zelewski

With its vibrant mix of culture, arts, and mesh of both rich and poor living in its residential areas, central London’s Soho district makes for a prime spot for a portrait project, and is just where photographer and Squarespace user Peter Zelewski set up shop for his project, People of Soho. Here he stumbled upon fashion stylist/art director Silvanna Judith Lamber and snapped this striking portrait. Over the project’s two year span, Zelewski has captured over 100 local characters, approaching them randomly on the street and placing them in the middle of the many unique Victorian alleyways and narrow streets characteristic of the area.
