East End by John Claridge


Perhaps no-one took more photographs in the East End of London in the sixties than John Claridge?

"People say life was hard in the East End but I found the living was easy and I loved it."

Collecting together more than two hundred of John Claridge's stylish and evocative images, this is a candid insider's portrait of an entire society observed by a unique photographic talent.

"My East End's gone, it doesn't exist anymore and these are pictures I could never do again, but seeing them now is like looking at an old friend."
