Photography: Nicholas Pomeroy's portraits of Londoners in their mid-twenties

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Everyone thinks they’re a street photographer these days, that they’re a someone who manages to “capture a generation” by taking photos of their overpriced noodles or that they’re the modern day answer to WeeGee because they took a photo of their friend being sick outside a club in Dalston. The fact is, that there are few photographers whose work actually smells like coffee and roll-up smoke, is as funny as a hungover joke, and is a squinty, hands-in-pockets portrait of people in their mid twenties as the images captured by Nick Pomeroy.

Back in 2011, Nick was getting through reams and reams of film and capturing his closest friends in a raw, big-grinned way that made you miss your own best chums. To revisit his work now and see a style that is so refined and magnificent is a true joy. We knew this man was gonna go places, for now it’s just a question of waiting to see where he’s going to take his camera, and his close-knit circle of friends to next.
