Blackchapel is a photobook about the dark side of Whitechapel and how one creates a space for photographic research when moving to a new territory. The book was created when msdm set up its first house-studio-gallery space in a warehouse at 85 Stepney Way, Whitechapel. It includes traces of the building’s past and the neighborhood’s own links to east London psychogeography.
