Another Time Another Place
Hackney in the 70s and 80s

An exhibition of more than 60 images by photographer Neil Martinson goes on display at Stour Space from 1st February — 4th March

Possibly the largest collection of unseen Hackney images from the 70s and 80s. It was a time when there was large scale manufacturing and Hackney still bore the scars of post-war slum clearance.

Later this month a selection from the series will be published as a photobook by Café Royal Books.

Launch: 1st February, 6-10pm, free entry — Kindly sponsored by TRUMAN'S Beer

Open daily until 4th March, 9am-5pm, free entry

Neil Martinson was born and brought up in Hackney. Whilst still at school he started taking photographs of street scenes and later extensively documented local working lives becoming a founder, with Jo Spence, of Hackney Flashers.

Many of his images appeared in books published by Centerprise and were used by local campaigns on housing, nurseries, education and trade union rights. His work appeared in national newspapers and magazines and he has work in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery.
