Ewen Spencer (b 1971) began shooting for visually driven style magazines, such as Sleazenation and The Face, with an emphasis on youth culture. His project Teenagers was shortlisted for the 2014 Discovery Award at Rencontres D’Arles and his four-part documentary film series Street, Sound and Style written directed and narrated by Ewen, was broadcast on Channel4 in 2015, posing questions later explored in a 2016 series, Oh My Mosch, considering British menswear’s obsession with flamboyant Italian menswear designers. Cover artwork created by Ewen for bands such as The Streets and The White Stripes has led to significant advertising commissions and campaigns. Ewen’s new imprint, See W, created in partnership with Olivia Gideon Thomson, publishes photobooks, focusing on youth and subculture research, photography and writing.
