Press Release

The East is being redefined. The Olympic fever has put an outcast on the map. The mainstream is now investing the once despised. It is not the first time the East has been given a facelift. The continuous migrations, the war and previous rejuvenations turned this landscape into something both identifiable and adaptable. The East End was and remains a land of experiments where the individual shapes his surroundings. 11 artist photographers familiar with its background and morphing captured its idiosyncrasy through various methodologies. Still the East End cannot be defined and the proud inhabitants are its essence. The East is not a landmark to contemplate but a hub to be lived and inspired from.

As you can see, I have work in this show which opens next week in Hackney. I’ve made my 5 prints, just need to frame them and get them there. I’ll write more about my work for the show, which comes from my book ‘London dérives 1975-1983‘ (ISBN 978-1-909363-08-3) later. Hope to see some of you at the opening – please RSVP to David Boulogne if you can come.
