Jenny Lewis grew up in Little Clacton, Essex. She moved to Hackney almost 20 years ago. Since then she has made her living as an editorial photographer, but continues to pursue a range of personal work. Much of this centres on her experience of living and working in East London. Alongside One Day Young, which pictures Hackney-born babies during the first 24 hours of life, she has also been photographing the extraordinary network of creatives who live alongside her in the borough. Recently she travelled to Malawi to do an extension of the One Day Young project for WaterAid, to bring awareness to the challenges women face in a health centre with no access to clean water.
One Day Young is now published by Hoxton Mini Press.
