Winner of Photo Eye best book in 2007

Selected by Martin Parr as one of the ten best photobooks of the decade

Hackney Wick in London’s East End has been transformed by the development of the Olympic village with a new green belt as well as high rise modern housing. The images in this book were shot with a plastic camera acquired by Gill at a local jumble sale and used to explore and document this place. A tip-in section features parallel stories that later developed into books of their own.
