Georgina Cook is a British photographer, artist and writer based in South London.

Cook is from Streatham, London. She is known primarily for her music work[1][2] but also for her use of gritty urban street elements as the subtext to what she documents.

She is behind Drumz Of The South; a blog relating to London's underground music cultures, grime and dubstep.[2][3] In 2005, she was interviewed for a BBC Radio 1 video documentary on dubstep in Brixton.[4]

Cook contributes her photographs to music and arts publications such as XLR8R,[5] The Wire,[1] Time Out,[6] BBC Radio 1,[7] The Daily Telegraph,[8] The Society for Curious Thought,[9] Qvest Edition and The Village Voice. Her images have been used for CD and vinyl releases including Dubstep Allstars Vol. 2 mixed by DJ Youngsta (Tempa), Burial's Untrue (Hyperdub) and Steppas' Delight (Soul Jazz Records).
