Jake Davis & Rob Jones, photographers and co-founders of Khroma Collective, set about capturing 40 of London’s most iconic clubs and venues — including Dalston Superstore, Brilliant Corners, and Printworks — during what would have been their usual opening times.

However, the images also offer hopeful glimpse into the future, as they explain: “With the recent announcement of nightclubs being able to open their doors once more, these images serve as a reminder of this anticipation and the positive memories that we all associate with these spaces.”

Prints are on sale now, and 40% of the total profits each order will be going to the Night Time Industries Association, who will distribute the funds.

The project comes on the heels of the NTIA’s warning that, without further government assistance, many clubs and venues are facing “extinction.”
