Bandele 'Tex' Ajetunmobi recorded the daily lives of his friends and acquaintances, particularly on the streets and in the pubs, shops and clubs around Whitechapel, Stepney and Mile End. His photographs, rarely seen outside his circle of family and friends at the time, are an important historical document of life in the East End of London.

There is an informal nature to Ajetunmobi's photographs where the people in the frame seem relaxed and at ease. He often captured the closeness between the long-established communities as well as the recent arrivals from countries in Africa, the Caribbean and Asia focusing his eye on the multi-racial nature of the area.
