Book 9 from the series 'East London Photo Stories'
‘Hackney By Night’ by David George. 80pp hardcover, quarter-bound, gold foiled,199 x 139 mm
This book is also available to buy as a Collector's Edition here.
David George’s photographs of Hackney by night reveal urban landscapes of stillness but also strange pastoral beauty. Here is the London that we miss when we sleep. The images are accompanied by a short story by Karen Falconer that takes the reader on a parallel journey into the night of the narrator’s past and a painful memory that is unresolved...
David George has been a photographer for over thirty-five years and spent the first twenty-five working on book, advertising and editorial commissions working mainly on location with low level light situations. At present his photographic projects are all based around the social and political narratives to be found in British man-altered landscape, which he exhibits in the UK and internationally. David lives and works in East London and in 2009 co-founded the Uncertain States photography project.
This is the first edition.

From Blackpool to Brighton, and Barry Island to Brightlingsea, these richly-detailed photographs capture the candyfloss colours and faded nostalgia of a seaside culture that is peculiarly (yet wonderfully) British.
Rob Ball has been a photographer for over 20 years. He spent time working as a news, sport and crime scene photographer before shifting to long-form personal projects while lecturing at Canterbury Christ Church University. Rob has exhibited his work internationally and continues to work on projects and commissions while lecturing.

'The East End in Colour 1980-1990', 128pp, cloth spine, 156mm x 196mm. Edited by Chris Dorley-Brown.
Book 5 in the series 'Vintage Britain'
This book is also available in a special book + limited edition print bundle. Click here to see them.
Following our hugely popular The East End in Colour 1960-1980 by David Granick, this new book by a different photographer, Tim Brown, picks up the story in 1980 as East London enters an extraordinary decade of transformation. Focusing on the Docklands and the further reaches of the East End, Tim took these pictures on 35mm film between shifts of driving trains on London Underground's Central Line.
Tim began taking photos in 1980, around the same time that he started a 20-year stint working on London Underground. He was a Central Line train driver for 13 years and lived in East London for over 20 before moving to Essex with his wife and two children. The book features an introduction by Chris Dorley-Brown, editor of the book, and an interview between Chris and Tim.
