Then & Now

Since early 2013 I have been re-photographing/imaging places I shot in the 1980s, trying either to replicate the views as exactly as possible or to create image-pairs that reflect the social as well as environmental changes that have taken place over the past 30 years or so. These pictures are divided into four galleries: theWestgallery contains shots taken around Westferry Road between Westferry Circus and Crews Street; theSouthgallery has pictures taken between there and Island Gardens Station; whilst theEastgallery covers the Manchester Road, Saunders Ness Road and Preston's Road areas. Pictures taken in the formerDockshave their own gallery.

Two of my 'Then & Now' image-pairs are on show as part of the Friends of Island History Trust display in the Canary Wharf Community Gallery, until 6th January 2016.
