A study of Hulme by Richard Davis “I took to Hulme straight away, how could you not, it was just so damn photogenic and so very different from anywhere I’d seen before. A lot of it was derelict, whilst what was occupied tended to consist of a diverse mix of artists, musicians, drop-outs, ex-students & the unemployed, the kind of people mainstream society seemed to reject. It also had the most amazing creative spirit and sense of community, and for a lot of people a real source of inspiration and get up and go energy. I quickly made friends with various comedians, poets, musicians etc and word got out I had a camera and knew how to use it, it was that easy”
Café Royal Books is a publisher of limited edition photographic titles focusing on British documentary photography. Founded by Craig Anderson the aim is to create a focussed and complete archive of British documentary photography.
The publications affordable, democratic, utilitarian and useful, without fuss or decoration. The images, history and the cultural archive are the focus. Helped by, but not overwhelmed by the design.
We like Craigs’ work in bringing this collection together and offer a selection of titles here that are a picture record of British culture.
