Watching Hackney

Watching Hackney

Watching Hackney is an online photographic exhibition by young people. A range of images that reflect their ideas and impressions about the borough. Over the last six years the borough has witnessed dramatic change in terms of gentrification and divide. It is also an urban space of great diversity and rich histories of local residents. This is a snapshot of Hackney and it’s inhabitants by the young people who live here.
