Spanning 12 years Don't Call Me Urban! is a fascinating photographic portrayal of underground music culture and social alienation. Capturing the era when London's inner-city youth found an authentic voice, Simon Wheatley's incisive eye goes into the raw environment from which the new stars of British popular music, such as Dizzee Rascal and Tinchy Stryder have emerged.

"No one else has really documented the culture and what it is to have a life of grime."  Dacre Bracey, RWD magazine

"An honest and bitter-sweet document of our time that should continue to have significance long after the moments of its making."  —Chris Steele-Perkins

"Wheatley's searing and sympathetic images achieve a strange beauty for all the emptiness and despair they capture." —Metro (January 31, 2011)

"Wheatley's pictures just ooze a feeling of isolation and the tension within many of the frames almost reaches out and grabs the viewer." —

"The book is a visual reflection of what grime represented, chronicling the conditions that spawned the genre." —

"Wheatley's brilliant work of photojournalism is much needed as a sociological study." —Isabel Taylor,

"It's a must have." —

"I love the way he's captured the realness and rawness of London and its youth – especially in the action shots." —
