About the Author

Chris Dorley-Brown is a British photographer who has lived and worked in the East End for over 30 years. He trained as a photographer with Red Saunders in the early 1980s and then set up his own practice in east London. He began documenting the area around Hackney, and undertook several public commissions including a project for Hackney Council to photograph every tower block estate in the borough as well as becoming photographer-in-residence at Homerton Hospital. His 30 year archive traces back to the after-effects of post-war rebuilding, and extends through the Thatcher years, the Blair years and on into the present period of 'regeneration' that laid the ground for the extensive makeover of large parts of East 4London for the 2012 Olympics.
