In the late 1990’s Ewen Spencer's groundbreaking editorial for The Face & Sleazenation immediately spoke to an audience interested in subcultures, multiculturalism, music, graphic art, photography, fashion and youth culture. In 2001 Ewen embarked upon a project called Teenagers documenting British adolescents as they come to terms with socialising, dating and sex. His signature flash style became synonymous with a close aspect to his subjects. In 2002 Martin Parr tipped him as the most promising newcomer of that year. In 2004 London’s burgeoning grime scene allowed him access to make photographs during open mic session in and around London. His book Open Mic is one of the best examples of Ewen’s work to date.
