Newham’s most famous resident, fashion photographer David Bailey, is having a photography exhibition put together in his honour.
But these pictures won’t feature Jean Shrimpton – instead they document 50 years of East London’s streets and the changing landscape since the 1960s. With the Olympic Park and Westfield Stratford appearing over the past few years, there’ll sure be plenty of changes to see.
David Bailey’s East End coincides with the CREATE summer programme, which runs from 21 June to the end of August and celebrates local artists and creativity.
David Bailey’s East End runs from 6 July – 5 August 2012 at Compressor House, Royal Docks, Newham.
Opening hours: 11am – 7pm Tuesday – Sunday; late night until 9.30pm Thursday and Friday
Entry: £6, £4 conc. FREE for Newham residents.
