ISLE OF DOGS THEN & NOW


PHOTOGRAPHS BY MIKE SEABORNE

INVITATION TO THE PRIVATE VIEW
24TH JUNE 2014 6-8PM, CAFÉ VERT, GEORGE GREEN’S SCHOOL, E14 3DW (DLR ISLAND GARDENS, D7 BUS)


In 1983-6 Mike undertook an extensive photographic project on the Isle of Dogs 
in East London to document the area prior to its redevelopment. This involved 
not only photographing the streets and buildings but also inside factories, schools, 
community centres and other social spaces. The aim was to make a record of the 
Island before ‘big money’ moved in and transformed both the landscape and 
the people who lived and worked there.
Since early 2013 Mike has been re- photographing places he shot in the 1980s, 
trying to replicate the views as exactly as possible to show the extent of the changes.
You are invited to come and see some of Mike’s photographs exhibited in Café Vert 
and hear him speak about his work.
