Since 2014 Deborah Rolt has been photographing life in East London, capturing powerful and affectionate images which speak eloquently of the daily realities of work and leisure in this colourful part of the city, with its equally kaleidoscopic people andtrans-ethnic neighbourhoods. Her photographs are distinguished by their human sympathy, featuring an eclectic mix of characters and venues - from an East End boxing club to a charity Christmas lunch which demonstrates Deborah's aesthetic flair and her ability to draw out the warmth in every scene as she captures the heart of a community.
Deborah Rolt is a much travelled photographer and businesswoman. She is married with three children and successfully runs a business supplying handmade rugs to interior decorators worldwide. She graduated from Leicester University where she studied Fine Art and has an interest in contemporary art, collecting works for the last thirty years.Photography has always been an important part of her life, travelling from London's East End to Afghanistan, capturing everyday people.
