This site is concentrating on David and Sonya Newell-Smith's
Street Photography.


Following their successful careers as photojournalists David and Sonya founded Tadema Gallery in Islington's famed Camden Passage in 1978. They first specialised in 20th Century Abstract Art and the Decorative Arts of the 19th and 20th Centuries. They ultimately specialized in jewellery and became internationally renowned for their expert eye and exquisite examples from the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. Tadema Gallery had a wide range of international clients including museums and private collections as well as many regular visitors to their Gallery.
In their valued spare time, David and Sonya pursued their love of street photography and most Sundays were spent in and around Brick Lane documenting the colourful, vibrant street scene. They produced a series of self-published books on the area and were planning a magnum opus incorporating the best of all the material gathered over many years when sadly David died (for obituary click here) Sonya has future plans to make this happen as a tribute to David.
