Street photography in the East End of London, from the 1850s to the present day

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 14th Dec 2017

The East End of London has played a central role in the development of photography where the social conditions of the area and its people have fascinated generations of photographers in their work.

Using the extensive collections on London History held at Bishopsgate Institute, this talk led by Stefan Dickers, Special Collections and Archives Manager, will explore the development of street photography from the 1850s, when fledgling photographers attempted to catch the flourishing docks and shipyards of the Isle of Dogs, to the work of their contemporary counterparts.

Led by Stefan Dickers, the Library and Archives Manager at Bishopsgate Institute who looks after its extensive collection of books, pamphlets, maps, photographs and oral histories on London history, as well as the labour movement, protest, atheism, the co-op and LGBT history. He is passionate about history, the Institute and its historic collections (along with West Ham United) and will talk about them all at length to anyone who will listen. He started as the archivist at Bishopsgate Institute in 2005 and has previously worked at the London School of Economics and Senate House Library. He is also Archives and Resources Secretary of the Society for the Study of Labour History. Follow @stefdickers
