“EAST – A Retrospective Exploring London's East End“
As part of a project with Stratford, Getty Images Gallery worked through the archival collections unearthing images of the East End, its residents; the cosmopolitan atmosphere and communities and incredible portraits of locals resilience during the Blitz in 1940.
Each piece entices the viewer into the picture, allowing them to appreciate the beauty and history of East Londoners going about their daily life. The exceptional photography of subjects in unconventional or candid settings and brilliance of black and white photography, keep the audience captivated in every aspect of the shot.
Key works on display include images from the legendary Picture Post magazine; The Pool of London; Whitechapel’s Jews and Cockneys’ Own Party. A exceptional piece includes a 1912 image of barefoot children waiting in Salmon’s Lane for a free meal, which Getty Images’ Hulton Archive printed from the original glass plate, despite it being damaged, to give a fascinating illustration of East London exactly 100 years ago.
The images were collated from the archival collections in online imagery, print files and contact sheets. Getty Images darkrooms worked from original glass plate negatives through to contemporary film, hand printing and hand retouching each print.
