I have been trying in the last year to find some platform to celebrate and exhibit 10 years of Photography in the East End. I have had a potential offer from the Tower Hamlet Archives but I didn't dig that option further for various reasons. I was also in touch with a very nice curator at the Museum of London but the Museum being in the midst of a transition with new facilities by the Smithfield Market didn't make it easy. And obviously on top of all that we had the Covid situation back then.
2022 seems different so let's cross our fingers and try new applications.
I just received some feedback from the Queen Elizabeth Park which makes me smile,...
Thank you for the email. Our venues are busy this year and we have not scheduled any public space for photography exhibitions on the Park. However if you do go ahead with an exhibition in the area please drop us a line and we can see if it is appropriate to promote across any of our channels.
All the best,
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park: a dynamic new metropolitan centre for London

I am approaching the A12 and there is a medley of scripts. One area by the A12 must have been annexed by some locals for allotments. One large plot where must-be concept boarded-up low rise studios is abandoned and rotting away. An industrial estate has vanished and new luxury apartments are coming.
I am crossing the A12 and am walking toward Langdon Park station. The atmosphere is more settle on that side. Older council estates are still standing with Balfron Tower in the distance. There is a sense of community I can feel and some old landmarks are kept and maintained which is refreshing.
