Zoe CraigExhibition Preview: East at Getty Images Gallery at Westfield Stratford City
Shopping or art exhibition… Exhibition or shopping? If, like us, you often ponder these two options at the start of a weekend, you'll be pleased to hear you can do both this month, at the Westfield in Stratford.
The exhibition, called East, is being held at the Getty Images Gallery at Westfield Stratford City from this Friday. The pop-up gallery on The Street (where do they come up with these names?) will be showing Getty Images' archive collections of great photos of the East End and its residents.
East features candid photos from the past 100 years, including some classic Pearlies from 1955; a real King and Queen's visit to east London during the Blitz; and lots of children seemingly auditioning for roles as either cherubs or urchins. It's quite a collection.
Images from the show will be available to buy throughout the exhibition: prices start from £65.
