graphic designer, illustrator, animator and photographer, this weeks LDNER is quite the multidisciplinarian. Originally from Portugal, Ines has been living in London for three years and has been capturing the funny, gloomy and sometimes ironic side of her surroundings with no boundaries of subject through photography. An exhibition of her works is to be shown at The Book Club later this month. More details below…meet Ines Delicioso.

Where do you live in London and what do you love about that area?

I live in East London. I think I like that this area is a bit of an ever-changing chaos that allows me to always find new things.


Tell us about what you do for a living?

I work in a major research and insights company as a graphic designer. They like that I am quite multidisciplinary and I have been doing a bit more than just graphic design, so sometimes I produce videos, do a bit of illustration or animation… And then outside of work I like to take pictures of my life and my surroundings.

How would you say London influences and inspires your work?

I think when I first moved I got a bit of a creative block. There are so many people here, the frantic rhythm of the city, the huge amount of visual stimulation was a bit too much for me in the beginning. That and also having left my friends – my favourite subject at the time – back in Portugal! But then I started to use photography as a way of organising the chaos I felt. I got this weird obsession for bin bags dropped in the street, I started to meet new interesting people that I wanted to photograph and now I just think London is amazing to create! I can find random stuff everywhere – from people to dead natures. It just stimulates the eye if you’re up for the ride.


Where do you go in London for inspiration?

I love Photographer’s Gallery near Oxford Street. It’s just an amazing place. And there’s a huge list of museums and a lot of exhibitions always happening, so it’s just easy to see new things if I want to! But I have to admit I get inspired with friends looking funny, or doing crazy stuff. And sometimes just walking down the street and finding awkward arrangements of random objects is enough to trigger my attention!

You have an exhibition launch coming up, tell us about that?

I do!! I am still trying to realise what that means to me. I really don’t know, I am just excited I can show some (it is really just some, my body of work is enormous!) of my work with everyone that wants to peep in! This one will be a summary of the last 3 years, my life in London and my holidays in Portugal. It is a recap of my life, but also an evolution to where I was three years agor and where I am now.


Where do you like to hang out, grab food and go for a drink?

East London! I am quite homie during the winter so my house or friend’s houses is a nice place to hang out. Victoria Park is lovely for a stroll. To grab food, any vegan friendly restaurants or cafes I can find. And for drinks I love to go to this pub near wapping, can’t remember the name but it has small deck facing the river, it’s really nice and peaceful. Also, Shoreditch, Dalston and just the streets sometimes turn out to be nice places to go for drinks.

What would be your perfect day in London?

A sunny summer day cycling with my friends to some park, having a picnic and finishing the day on a house party with a nice garden.
