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.
This exhibition of more than 60 images is possibly the largest collection of unseen Hackney images of that period.
It was a time when there was large scale manufacturing and Hackney still bore the scars of post-war slum clearance.
On display at Stour Space 1st-22nd February 2018, open daily 9am-5pm.
