In 2010 It’s hard to imagine east London’s trendy London Fields area as anything but a hot-spot for trendy, cultural and creative individuals with a little too much ‘hip’. This series of photographs, The Ghetto Series, taken by London Fields resident Tom Hunter back in 1994, when the area was described by the Hackney Gazette as “a crime-ridden, derelict ghetto, a cancer – a blot on the landscape” gives the place a whole new complexion.
The photographs were part of a campaign to save the community from developers and fourteen years later the London creative community have lots to be thankful for.
