For the love of Croydon
The unnoticed side of our town is captured in "A love letter to Croydon", a unique collection of photos from Ameena Rojee, freelance photographer and Croydon resident.
"If you know London, you’ve probably heard of Croydon and its terrible reputation. Ask almost anyone and they’ll tell you that Croydon is a pit; an ugly, concrete mess with deluded aspirations of wanting to be its own city..."
Ameena has set out to show there's more to Croydon than crime and concrete with her collection of beautiful, quirky and cleverly captured photos of her home town.
"The thing about Croydon, however, is that it’s also full of incredible beauty: in its abundant green and natural spaces which many don’t know about, its melting pot of people, culture and characters, and in the easily missable everyday moments."
Ameena collaborated with Another Place Press to get her series of photographs of Croydon published as an affordable, 32 page zine. A love letter to Croydon, assembled from photographs taken over several years, is her attempt to show an unseen side to Croydon; a beautiful, delicate, poetic side.
As Ameena says "I hope you can see what I see".
You can purchase the zine for just £8 at
