“If you wanted to be anyone or anywhere you wouldn’t stay in Hackney. It’s quite the opposite now.” 

~ Neil Martinson, Hackney Gazette

The studio visited Martinson’s ‘Another Time, Another Place’ at Stour Space yesterday. The exhibition revisits Hackney in the 70s and 80s, documenting working lives of Hackney locals, families and street scene culture.

Working with photographer Jo Spence, he founded Hackney Flashers, a key part of Hackney’s creative activism during the 70s, pressing for women’s rights.
