This week we closed our series of events at Ace Hotel with a summer party. We invited readers along to join us for drinks and a performance by the brilliant Deep Throat Choir who sang songs by the likes of Little Dragon and Sade. Tabitha Bangura, NTS played beats
Each issue we invite a different person to select their icon and write some choice words about why they hold them in such high regard. For issue #4 we invited photographer and filmmaker Ewen Spencer to select his icon and he wrote a touching and personal ode to Elaine Constantine. The pair first met at an all-nighter in 1995 and then
spoke again in 1999 when they both worked on a story for The Face about the UK Garage scene. Elaine became a hugely supportive figure in Ewen’s life and career, as he states, “Elaine was godlike to me as a photographer.” To read Ewen’s full tribute to Elaine order your copy of issue #4 here.
