East End Revival A photography experience with Stuart Freedman
  • Photography

  • East London

  • 3 hours

About the Experience
  • Explore the East End, formerly one of London’s most deprived areas, and now breeding ground for city slickers, start-ups and independent shops and cafes.
  • Learn how this cultural melting pot has seen a rapid gentrification, leaving much of its traditional cockney chirp, and inevitably some of its soul, far behind.
  • Stroll down Brick Lane through to the hipster trails of Hoxton, as Stuart helps reveal what once was, and what is still to come for London’s East End.
  • Charge up your camera and capture the neighbourhood's cultural evolution while learning the tricks of the trade from a renowned photographer.
  • This experience is based on learning to see images. Please restrict your equipment to one body and one lens (preferably a 50mm or a 35mm).
  • You will talk with Stuart about reportage, photojournalism and street photography. Before your experience, please do have a quick look at the photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Marc Riboud and perhaps Robert Doisneau. While this isn’t essential, it’ll help you get more out of the experience!
