Tom Hunter photography show examines East London public spaces

SHOWING this month at Dalston’s Print House Gallery, is a series photographs taken in Hackney with a homemade, large-format pinhole camera by internationally renowned artist Tom Hunter. 

As digital technologies increasingly construct and construe our view of the world, Hunter seeks to contemplate his environment through a more traditional lens.

The images in Public Spaces, Public Stages document community spaces, or 'theatres', where everyday life is acted out to make up a neighbourhood.

Tom’s work has ranged widely in medium, subject and geography, but he says his use of this specific photographic tool is key to depicting the local here and now.

He adds: “The photographs remind us of the cultural and spiritual diversity to be found within our own local environs.

"It is important to find and interpret spaces removed from the increasingly pervasive commercialisation and sanitisation of my community.”

Public Spaces, Public Stages runs until 25 March at Print House Gallery.
