Collection: Iain Sinclair   1943 - present 

Iain Sinclair was born in 1943 in Cardiff, and studied at Trinity College, Dublin, the Courtauld Institute of Art, and the London School of Film Technique. His early work was poetry, published by his own Albion Village Press, and including the collections Lud Heat: A Book of the Dead Hamlets (1975) and Suicide Bridge: A Mythology of the South and East (1979).

He was connected to the British avantgarde poetry scene in the 1960s and 70s involving J. H. Prynne, Douglas Oliver and Brian Catling. He also edited the 1996 poetry anthology, Conductors of Chaos. Much of Sinclair’s work has revolved around ideas of psychogeography, particularly that surrounding London.
