The Vanishing Culture of Hackney Wick

The Vanishing Culture of Hackney Wick

An Ukrainian photographer falls in love with the vibrancy of one of East London’s coolest spots only to find that it’s slowly disappearing. In an effort to capture and preserve this youth culture that soon will be overthrown by overpriced flats, Svitlana turned her 35mm film camera to Hackney Wick’s architecture and tribes. This is her tribute.
