This photobook presents Stephen Gill's seminal work Hackney Wick.
Stephen Gill discovered Hackney Wick Market in East London in 2002. The vast market took place on a Sunday in an old Greyhound/Speedway stadium where sellers sold mostly scrap and junk. Stephen bought a plastic camera with no controls there for 50P and shot the market until it was closed in 2003, to be demolished for the London Olympics. Alongside the traders he shot a hidden and now lost natural world of canals, rivers and secret allotments.
