The Velvet Cell is an independent publishing house, established by Eanna de Freine in 2011. 

Our mission is to publish photography projects that explore our current state of modernity and relationship with the man-altered world. We love projects that help us to see our world in new ways; utilising the power and beauty of photography. Our books aim to both inspire and inform our readers. 

Today, more than ever before, we are an urban species. For the first time most of us are living in a world that we have purposefully created for ourselves. What does our new world say about us? How do our cities reflect us as people? How do our cities change us as people?
