ESSY SYED works with cameras, wood, ink and paint in a variety of mediums from her North London studio. She also photographs musicians and is always seeking talented new subjects. Born in Nairobi Kenya, 1976 to an English mother and Indian father, she moved to Britain in the early Eighties and spent her childhood years knocking around the contrasting atmospheres of Slough and Windsor in Berkshire, immersing herself in the local punk and folk scenes whilst secretly dreaming of becoming the next Don McCullin, Cesare Ripa or Frederick Delius. She has been freelancing for several years and has a BA (Hons) Photographic Arts from the University of Westminster.
Many thanks to Essy for her wonderful photos for Room 7 1/2 and many images for this website.
