ALONG THE HACK­NEY CANAL

Canal Boat - - News -

This is a book of pho­to­graphs of the River Lee and wa­ter­ways of the Hack­ney Marshes area of East Lon­don – but don’t ex­pect pic­tures of nar­row­boats or locks and bridges. No, this is a col­lec­tion of un­cap­tioned art pho­tog­ra­phy by a grad­u­ate of pho­to­jour­nal­ism and doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­phy. It de­picts sub­jects such as pat­terns of waves on wa­ter; trees and veg­e­ta­tion in all weather from frost to sun­shine and mist; cor­morants perched in leaf­less win­ter trees; the lo­cal Jewish com­mu­nity walk­ing in the marshes in their dis­tinc­tive dress; even the odd aban­doned shop­ping trol­ley or car­rier bag pro­vides ma­te­rial for the pho­tog­ra­pher’s lens.
