Peter Marshall paid a visit to the new Canning Town area this Summer. This urban landscape in panoramic mode is without recognition. That could be anywhere really. A tiny bit of land surrounded by the Lea mouth has grown towers and is now called City Island, as if the City is now merging with the further East End.

This is the official invite for our upcoming show at the Cass School. Unusually our Private View will take place the very same day as the start of the running of the show. Feel free to spread the word. It should be a good night.

Beautiful show at the Bank Gallery/Cass School involving David George. It's about the Far East of London. Good size and versatile show, great collaboration. Go there quick before it's too late. I definitely recommend it.


Lovely double spread of Chris Dorley-Brown's work in the latest Open Call issue of Uncertain States.

I have completed a new project about the East End this Summer. It is a mix of polaroids and 6x7 negs photographs. It is called Living on a higher level and will be presented for the first time during the Photomonth festival at the Cass school for our upcoming show East End Scores. I am only showing here a couple of visuals as teaser but you will understand more if you come along as it is an installation. A selection will available later this year on my website.

EAST END SCORES interviews part 3

Third interview with artist photographer and East End Archive curator Susan Andrews on the fifth floor of the Cass School with a spectacular view on the new Aldgate East and the City.

Sunday 28 August 2016


I love walking around and see how the East-End is morphing still. I am particularly sensitive to boards and all sorts or writings, either legals or not. I was trying out the Emirates cable cars in North Greenwich with my daughter, and I frankly didn't feel secure as it was a windy day. Right in the middle of our journey I felt like I really had to talk to my neighbour to keep me away from panic. He looked dressed like for a daily commute, a sort of local engineer in his late forties. I said I suspected that one of the new "rejuvenation" program was taking place here under our feet. He definitely agreed as he spent the last few months on various building sites and would fly above the Thames daily. "That's the next big thing" he said - to be continued.
As we reached safely the grounds we walked towards the O2 and I found this bit of writing above that made me smile, sort of.

A week later, I was doing some tests for a future photo installation about the new E20 district in Stratford. Waiting for a friend I found various local adverts and took few snapshots. I thought it was funny to put those two as a dialogue.

OLMYPICS postcards


My local charity shop is always full of surprises and I find little gems quite often. Here is the latest called OlMyPics and produced between 2004 and 2012 (apparently). Photographic collaboration between Caroline Christie, Bobby Lloyd and Travellers & Gypsy kids. I have never heard of that project to be honest. Even more surprised it has been commissioned, funded and even toured.

I wanted to post a photograph of the Lea River by Eton Manor Walk, view which is dear to me, but this time it has been shot by Marty, aged 10, and it is tilted Looking down River Lea 2004

EAST END SCORES interviews part 1

Chris Dorley-Brown is the first artist photographer out of four to present his work on camera. A lengthy discussion which will have to be reduced to 10 minutes for an installation to be unveiled during this year's Photomonth festival at the Cass school. It will be an unusual display with a lot of interactivity, that's all we can say for now.
