Berris Conolly’s Hackney
For my birthday this year I was given a Hackney photography book from the wonderful local selection at Pages of Hackney. It was my first introduction to Berris Conolly‘s photos of the area and I loved them.
So I wanted to share them. Berris lived in Maury Rd, N16 from 1981 to 1988, he left commercial work to do documentary landscape and turned to what was around him. This has left a legacy of great photos of the area from a very different time, here are a sample, enjoy!
Broadway Market 1985
London Orphan Asylum 1987
River Lea 1986
Clissold Park 1986
