Hattie Collins, features editor at iD magazine, has been involved in Grime since it’s emergence as a distinct scene around 2002. Working across many publications throughout the years she has seen and documented much of the history of the genre. Now she has collaborated with award winning photographer Olivia Rose to compile this heartfelt tribute to the genre. Featuring the likes of Wiley, Dizzee, Stormzy, Kano, Novelist, JME, Jammer and many more, the softcover book is a collection of photographs shot entirely on film with accompanying anecdotes from Grime contributors both new and old to give a great cross section of the genre’s storied history.
“Narrated by its originators, ‘This Is Grime’ by Hattie Collins with exclusive images by Olivia Rose is the definitive book on Britain’s most provocative subculture.”
