BY LAURA BRAUN
Métier, Small Businesses in London, is a photographic book by Laura Braun about small-scale independent and specialist businesses in the capital and the people who run them. In a time when the high streets ofLondon are taking on a more and more corporate character, this book offers an unusual and interesting perspective on the city and an insight into the working lives of people who strongly identify with their occupation. Over six years, Laura Braun slowly added to this collection of portraits and interior photographs of very individual London businesses. The book contains images of 25 people and their plaaces of work accompanied by a short text about each of them and an after word by sociologist Dawn Lyon.
