Capture Hackney: Photos Wanted

By Tyla75
As part of Hackney Council's commitment to 'mapping the change' in the Borough as 2012 approaches they're running a photography project to capture Hackney for posterity at this transformational time.

There are 1800 pictures in our Flickrpool tagged Hackney alone so excellent fodder for a competition like this and many of you will be living or working in the borough witnessing the changing landscape. And noticing what's staying the same.

The most striking, resonant and narrative images submitted to the project will be selected for an exhibition at Hackney Museum in October and archived for future generations to pore over. Imagine it: "wow, look at what people used to wear down Broadway Market!", "gosh, Hackney Wick used to be an industrial wasteland yet full of artists", or "amazing, Hackney used to have a Woolworths". Etc.

Hackney Council are working with Shoot Experience on this so it's easy to upload your images to the Shoot Experience website - do so by 17th September.
