East London’s vibrancy is at the forefront of Greater London’s evolving persona, a lynchpin reinforcing the city’s international reputation for creativity and diversity. Having spearheaded the UK’s biggest population rise over the past decade, the area has well and truly moved beyond its old Dickensian aura. Voices East London reveals its thriving kaleidoscope of visual geography by means of dynamic interviews and striking new photography. Covering Shoreditch to Bethnal Green, Hackney Central to Clapton, Hoxton to Haggerston, Stoke Newington to Dalston, Whitechapel to Aldgate, Mile End to Limehouse, and Hackney Wick to Bow, the book features eighty creative personalities across genders, cultures and generations, all of whom have made the area their home.
